N.T. Wright will retire as Bishop of Durham this August. I've been amazed at his ability to fulfill this role with his abundance of writing and his speaking schedule, and he says it has become increasingly difficult. I can't help but think this will leave a huge hole in the leadership of the Anglican church, but Wright will continue writing and teaching, so the while the Anglican Church will lose a leader, the world at large will still benefit from his great mind and heart for Christ.
His new position will be Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
