Questioning NT Wright on American church racism

Questioning NT Wright on American church racism July 18, 2020

I have had the great privilege of getting to know Tom Wright from two trips to the States which I helped arranged (once in 2007 to Roanoke and then in 2019 to Birmingham) and host.  He is a great man and Christian leader.  He is also the most influential biblical scholar in the world.

In June he published a paper on American church racism which I found myself in deep disagreement with.  I wrote Tom directly to explain my differences.  He told me that he did not disagree with my points.  So then I asked if he would like to write a response.  He said he did not have time for that, and graciously gave me permission to publish my letter to him.  Here is most of that letter.
