Excerpt


St. Paul continues to provoke people as much today as he did in the first century. Some see him as the greatest teacher of Christianity after Jesus himself, while others regard him as a pestilent and dangerous fellow. Over the years, scholars have debated and written books on the historic Paul and his role in the birth of Christianity. Most recently, English novelist and biographer A.N. Wilson has revived the old argument that it was Paul of Tarsus and not Jesus of Nazareth who founded Christianity.

In this book, N.T. Wright, a world authority on the life and letters of Paul, leads readers through the current scholarly discussion of Paul and gives a concise account of the actual contribution Paul made to the birth of Christianity. Wright offers a critique of the argument that claims that it was Paul who founded Christianity and shows clearly that Paul was not "the founder of Christianity"but was the faithful witness and herald of Jesus of Nazareth, the Jewish Messiah and the risen Lord of the Christian faith.

Excerpt


All Christians worship God, but many do not fully understand what "worship" means. This insightful book by Wright explores both the meaning and the results of worship. Based firmly on sensitive and creative readings of the biblical text, these chapters issue a timely and provocative call for renewal in the worship of today's church.

Bishop of Durham, the fourth-ranking post in the Church of England. Formerly Canon Theologian of Westminster Abbey and dean of Lichfield Cathedral, he also taught New Testament studies for twenty years at Cambridge, McGill and Oxford Universities. Wright's full-scale work Jesus and the Victory of God is widely regarded as one of the most significant studies in the contemporary "Third Quest" of the historical Jesus.
