Tom Wright awarded prestigious British Academy medal

Just heard via Mike Bird that Tom Wright (see the picture above on my blog header!) has been ‘awarded the Burkitt Medal for his work in biblical studies. Professor Wright described himself as “thrilled and astonished”, saying that it was “a great honour” to have been chosen by the British Academy’.

For the full story, see The Saint article. Many congrats to you, Tom!

Am I the only one to think, whenever I read PFG, of Roald Dahl’s BFG?!

Hmm. . . Which of Wright's books would equate to The Twits? And which to George's Marvellous Medicine?
