1. Graham Kings, quoted at the Times: “Tom Wright’s substantial contribution to the House of Bishops will be greatly missed. The good news is that his multi-volume series of New Testament theology can now be completed.” Although, on the other hand, it means the Archbishop of Canterbury will lose his key aid in his fight for the unity of Anglican communion: “He will be badly missed by his troubled Church, where he has served as the leading voice attempting to help Dr Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, maintain unity from the evangelical side. Dr Wright has been a figurehead for centrist evangelicals who wish to uphold Gospel truths while remaining within the mainstream Anglican Communion.”
