Excerpt


This first volume in the Christian Origins and the Question of God series provides a historical, theological, and literary study of first-century Judaism and Christianity. Wright offers a preliminary discussion of the meaning of the word "god" within those cultures, as he explores the ways in which developing an understanding of those first-century cultures are of relevance for the modern world. By examining the history, social make-up, worldview, beliefs, and hope of Palestinian Judaism, Wright introduces you to the world of Judaism as situated within the world of Greco-Roman culture.

Excerpt


In this highly anticipated volume, N. T. Wright focuses directly on the historical Jesus: Who was he? What did he say? And what did he mean by it?

Wright begins by showing how the questions posed by Albert Schweitzer a century ago remain central today. Then he sketches a profile of Jesus in terms of his prophetic praxis, his subversive stories, the symbols by which he reordered his world, and the answers he gave to the key questions that any world view must address. The examination of Jesus' aims and beliefs, argued on the basis of Jesus' actions and their accompanying riddles, is sure to stimulate heated response. Wright offers a provocative portrait of Jesus as Israel's Messiah who would share and bear the fate of the nation and would embody the long-promised return of Israel's God to Zion.

N. T. Wright is the recently consecrated Bishop of Durham in England and widely acclaimed New Testament scholar. Among his many influential works is the newly published The Resurrection of the Son of God, the third volume in his much-noted series, Christian Origins and the Question of God (Fortress Press, 2003).

Excerpt


The Resurrection of the Son of God offers an unparalleled treatment of Christ's resurrection set within the context of ancient Greek philosophy and fiction, ancient and post-biblical Judaism, and early Christianity (beginning with Paul and ending with the Gospels). In doing so, Wright's exhaustive comparison and constructive analysis finds Bultmannian interpretations of the resurrection, which deny its physicality, unsubstantiated and incoherent given the meaning of resurrection in the First Century. This comprehensive argument covers 817 pages, giving weighty evidence in favor of the Church's traditional beliefs regarding the resurrection. Wright concludes that the early Christian answer that Jesus had indeed been bodily raised from the dead and was thus hailed as the messianic "Son of God" serves as the best historical explanation of these events given the evidence we currently possess. Most deservedly, Wright’s volume was awarded Best Academic Book and Book of the Year by the Association of Theological Booksellers at the 2003 Theologos Awards.
