BREAKING NEWS: Wright’s new appointment

Thanks to a tip off from Richard Bauckham, I am rather excited to post this scoop (though I have already been beaten to it, looking at my blog roll!):

N.T. Wright has been appointed to a Chair in New Testament and Early Christianity at St Andrews!

The news item tells us that he 'will take up his duties on 1 September 2010' and that 'he will further enhance the long-established reputation of the School of Divinity as a major international centre of biblical and theological scholarship'.

Of course, having studied for my undergrad at St Andrews, I have a real soft spot for the University. Many congratulations to Bishop Wright.
