Clerical Spat!

Over at First Things!

In April, Fr. Richard John Neuhaus criticized what he read in (Anglican) Bishop N. T. Wright's new book, "Surprised by Hope." "The Possibilities and Perils in Being a Really Smart Bishop."

Well, Bishop Wright met up with Fr. Neuhaus on a recent trip to New York. They had lunch. And he wrote a sharply worded rejoinder. (Fr. Neuhaus gets the last word though in this correspondence.)

And in case you missed it, one of the most entertaining (and theologically fearless) segments on Colbert: N. T. Wright on Colbert! (Bishop Wright seems really relaxed and bubbly in that segment. Maybe this was filmed just after Fr. Neuhaus took him out to lunch? :))
