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.
