N.T. Wright in New York

N. T. Wright, one of the greatest, and certainly most prolific, Bible scholars in the world, has touched a nerve with his new book, "Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church." What happens when we die? How should we think about heaven, hell, purgatory and eternal life? Wright critiques the views of heaven in Western culture, especially the assumption of the continuance of the soul after death in a sort of blissful non-bodily existence. Come hear this celebrated and sometimes controversial scholar! Thursday – April 17, 2008 7 PM – 9 PM Church of St. Paul the Apostle Parish Center 405 W. 59th St. @ 9th Ave. New York, NY The lecture is free.
