Christianity Today's Top Five Theologians: Who are the Other Four?

My first post after a restored sanity (I attempted to leave WP; it seems like I was given up too much for widgets).

At any rate, I picked up Judas and the Gospel of Jesus by N.T. Wright and noticed that he was named one of the top five theologians in the world by Christianity Today.

Now Judas and the Gospel of Jesus was published back in 2006.  I googled the list but came up empty.

  • N.T. Wright

Does anyone know who are the other four theologians mentioned by Christianity Today?

  1. His brother Tom Wright may be one of the other ones.

    • Cindie Postell says:

      N.T. Wright is Tom Wright. Tom is being used for the New Testament for Everyone series published by Westminster/John Knox. It is directed to the laity and Tom sounds more familiar to the lay public.

  2. Matthew says:

    NT Wright
    Tom Wright
    Nicholas Wright
    Thomas Wright
    Nicholas Thomas Wright

    I think that was it…

    Jeff and Matthew: you guys are funny. You guys got no CT insiders?

  4. Peter Kirk says:

    How about N.O.T. Wright? 😉

  5. Jason Maltsbarger says:

    Was that a reference to an issue from years back where CT listed 5 theologians you should listen to or something like that? If so the others were: Richard Hays, Kevin Vanhoozer, Ellen Charry, and Miroslav Volf.

    G. Fee

    K. Vanhoozer

    J.D.G. Dunn

    D.A. Carson

    Peter, good one. 😉

    Jason and Brian L, you guys need to be in agreement. Which is it? 😀

  8. Brian LePort says:

    I am providing my own answers/guesses. Jason is probably right.

  9. T.C. R says:

    Brian L, not a bad list for someone who guessed. I’m sure it would make someone’s top 5. 😀

  10. Scott W says:

    NT Wrught
    Hans Kung
    Met. John Zizoulias
    James Cone
    Jurgen Moltmann

    Is that the official list?
