I was listening to a lecture from N.T. Wright today, and I was wondering. What is it that produces such wonderful theologians, scholars and apologists for the Christian faith from the United Kingdom?
In the past 100 years, we've had G.K. Chesterton (Roman Catholic), C.S. Lewis (Anglican), Bishop N.T. Wright (Anglican) and Metropolitan Kallistos Ware (Orthodox).
I'm sure the education these men may have had helped, but what is it that has made them so prominent and impressive when it comes to speaking on behalf of orthodox Christianity?
