Customer Reviews For "Paul"Write Your Own Review
A thought provoking, whirlwind tour of N. T. Wright's unique perspective on Paul. Wright's strength is his attention to the first century context of the New Testament. He writes with clarity and freshness, and throws around hearty criticisms at anyone who catches his attention, which keeps things interesting! (If you can figure out who exactly he is disagreeing with). His "overarching Biblical meta-narrative" has a lot in common with the Biblical Theology of Graham Goldsworthy, Christopher Wright, Vaughn Roberts etc, which I didn't expect. Regarding the big issue of justification, my cautious and uninformed conclusion (since this is first I've read from N.T Wright on the topic) is that the controversy seems to have more to do terminology than theology. Because Wright builds his own categories from scratch, drawing them from the Jewish backgrounds to the New Testament, it's easy to misunderstand him.
