Quotable: N.T. Wright on C.S. Lewis

I don’t read much N.T. Wright, but Michael Bird linked to a Touchstone article by Wright on C.S. Lewis, and I really enjoyed it. As a specialist in Hebrew Bible I appreciated the following comment, which deserves repetition:

Every step towards a de-Judaized Jesus is a step away from Scripture, away from Christian wisdom, and out into the world of . . . yes, Plato and the rest, which is of course where Lewis partly lived. If you don’t put Jesus in his proper context, you will inevitably put him in a different one, where he, his message, and his achievement will be considerably distorted.
