Product Description

Building on his 2004 Hulsean Lectures, Wright sheds new light on Paul---his world, legacy, and theology. The Bishop of Durham discusses the apostle's Jewish roots, attitude toward the Roman Empire, and experience of the risen Christ; and summarizes the main theological contours of Paul's thought---monotheism, election, and eschatology---and their relevance for the contemporary church. 195 pages, softcover from Fortress.

Publisher's Description

The letters of the Apostle Paul changed the world like no others before or since, and they continue to strike us afresh with their panoramic vision of human history and destiny.

Preeminent New Testament scholar and churchman N. T. Wright here offers a fresh perspective on the Apostle Paul's content and convictions. Wright ranks Paul as "one of the most powerful and seminal minds of the first or any century," endlessly engaging and perennially elusive. Yet, with recent research, Wright argues, we can now sketch with confidence a new and more nuanced picture of the Apostle and the radical way in which his encounter with Jesus redefined his life, his whole thought-world, his mission, and his expectations for a world made new in Christ. The result: a masterful, engaging, and enlightening portrait that situates Paul in his time and for our own.
