Letter to the Church Times (UK) regarding N.T.Wright's rhetoric

Dear Editor,

In the May 4th edition of the online Church Times, "Using Judas To Push an Agenda," Robin Griffith-Jones uses the word "handbagged" to describe N.T.Wright's rhetorical approach (to Gnosticism) in a review of his book, Judas and the Gospel of Jesus. I confess to feeling both "sandbagged and hornswoggled" reading N. T. Wright but not actually "handbagged" (yet).
