NT Wright and the biasness of Anglo Enlightenment "scholarship"


  1. I left the following comment over at Daniel's place:

    The irony here, of course, is that viewing the Scriptures through an evolutionary lens is the eisegetical "Johnny come lately" position, not the literal creationist approach.

    Where would one get an evolutionary view of creation? Certainly not from the Scriptures.

    In Christ,

  2. That's right. Certainly not from the scriptures.

  3. Contra N.T. Wright's statement that the creation/evolution debate is "a very America specific issue," here is a recent book where Brits do take issue with evolution. A few of these Brits hold masters and PhD degrees in scientific, mathematical, and, of course, theological disciplines as well as posts in major British universities. So I take it Wright won't outright disdain or dismiss them as part of the British "subculture"?
