Bishop N. T. Wright was on Colbert last night. Surreal.
They chat about his new book Surprised by Hope but essentially have a discussion on eschatology. Wright, an Anglican, gets in a nice good natured jab at Colbert, a Catholic.
PS - If you're unfamiliar with Wright and even mildly interested in Christian theology he's a good place to start. He's incredibly bright, articulate and balanced and possesses a rare trait among scholars of any faith - the ability to listen sympathetically to those who disagree with him. The N. T. Wright Page is a good resource for some free reading and listening.
PPS - Colbert has to be one of the smartest guys on TV.
PPPS - For some reason Thursday's show isn't on Hulu yet.
