N. T. (Tom) Wright, a noted biblical scholar who has been serving as the Anglican bishop of Durham, will return to academia in September, taking a chair in New Testament and early Christianity at St. Andrews School of Divinity in Scot land. Wright, 61, has taught in England and Canada and recently was on sabbatical at Princeton University working on a book about the apostle Paul.
The 21st-century world cannot be understood without an understanding of religion, says religion journalist–turned-professor Gustav Niebuhr.
“It’s a terrible irony that religion is so prominent in the world and yet so absent from the news,” Niebuhr told a May gathering in Indianapolis of the Associated Church Press and the Evangelical Press Association.
