Tom Wright in Salisbury on YouTube
Professor Tom Wright, Professor of New Testament at St Andrew’s University and author of over fifty books, has been interviewed in discussion with The Bishop of Sherborne, Dr Graham Kings, by Dr Michael DeLashmutt, Director of Studies at Sarum College.
Professor Wright was guest lecturer at the 2011 Sarum Theological Lectures organised by Sarum College.
The 40-minute interview, a lively discussion on key current issues of the Bible, modern culture and international politics, has been divided into eight clips and uploaded to YouTube.
Topics discussed include ‘Politics from a Christian point of view’, ‘The anniversary of the King James Bible’ and ‘The capture of Osama bin Laden’.
Dr Kings said, “It was a joy to welcome Professor Wright, one of our top scholars, and have such a lively, intelligent, wide-ranging discussion. We hope you enjoy listening to the clips, think carefully about what’s being said, and have a look in the Bible for yourself.”
Dr DeLashmutt said, “I really enjoyed being part of a conversation with the two Bishops. It’s not often you see this sort of thing happening in a recording studio, and I think a lot of people would be interested to listen in. Sarum College would love to do this again sometime.”
Further clips are planned in association with Sarum College, Spire FM – who provide the recording facilities – and the Learning for Discipleship and Ministry Team, which provides training for clergy and others wishing to do Bible study in Wiltshire and Dorset.
