Many people have claimed that those who appreciate the writings of N.T. Wright and are essentially persuaded of his position (among whom I count myself) will dismiss every critique of him as issuing from an ignorance of his writings. Lamentably, most of the critiques I have come across to date have tended to be unbalanced, mean-spirited or misinformed. These seem to be a noteworthy exception. Whilst I do not agree with a number of things that are said, I commend these speakers for the even-handed, gracious and considered manner in which they critique Wright. I hope that, in the future, we see far more critiques of this kind and far less critiques of the former kind.
