Could This Be Postmodern?

The Bishop of Durham, N. T. Wright, appeared on "The Colbert Report" tonight. I am a fan of Wright and I appreciate his work. His interview with Stephen Colbert (who I remind myself is the voice of Prof. Impossible on the Venture Brothers) is on the subject of heaven and the resurrection.

Here's a popular scholar and high ranking clergyman in the Church of England chatting about the matter of extreme eschatalogical significance on a "mock" news show. And the interview came off pretty well; perhaps better than it would have on 20/20, Dateline, or some other network news magazine.

To top off the surrealism, the other guest on the show was Cookie Monster.
