Paul: Fresh Perspectives

Paul: Fresh Perspectives

N T Wright

$20.99

Paperback
'There will be surprises and riches in store; just when you think you've got Paul's measure, he chuckles and forces you to read a passage you thought you knew well in quite a different light'- from the Preface

N.T. Wright, Bishop of Durham, scholar and writer of distinction, turns his attention and considerable enthusiasm to the writings of Paul of Tarsus, whom he considers to be the intellectual equivalent of Plato, Aristotle or Seneca. He captures and reveals illuminating details from Paul's unique Judaic, Hellenistic and Roman heritage, allowing a rounded picture to emerge of an integrated philosophy - a unique, Christian theology.

Paul: Fresh Perspectives combines the virtues of detailed scholarship with an accessible style and a passion for exploring the message of Paul. The book is based on the prestigious Hulsean Lectures given by the author in Cambridge in spring 2005.

Customer Reviews For "Paul: Fresh Perspectives"

Write Your Own Review
Great for beginners in theology andor Paul.
5 stars By David N., Aug 21 2013
A great introduction to Pauline theology. Various topics are covered, such as Paul and each member of the Trinity, Paul and Jesus' different teaching-topics, and justification. With gentleness, N. T. Wright distinguishes himself from the 'new perspective' on Paul, and other interpretations of Paul. Without being aggressive, Wright argues his points of views mostly with the Bible. This was the first book I have read which is written by Wright, and I have already got a second book. I recommend N. T. Wright for everyone getting into theology. Lay aside your stereotypical ideas of Wright, and read this book (don't rely on internet articles to tell you about Wright).
