NT Wright on Comedy Central?

Larry and I started reading N.T. Wright about a year ago. He's an Anglican bishop who's been writing long scholarly books about the faith, in a way that takes us out of the traps of the Enlightenment (truth can be discovered by reason only, science only). His book, "Simply Christian," is to the post modern age what CS Lewis' "Mere Christianity" was to the modernists. Lewis explained Christianity using logic and philosophy. Wright explains our faith through story.

In his new book, "Surprised by Hope," Wright asks us to rethink our ideas about heaven. All great, but who'd ever imagine Wright on COmedy Central, being interviewed by someone who was sympathetic?

A girl can dream, can't she?
