As an important scholar of the New Testament and a prolific author and lecturer, N. T. Wright’s books have been highly influential in the study of Jesus, Paul, and early Christianity. Wright’s Christian Origins and the Question of God series—now available from Logos Bible Software—contains the three completed books in the projected six-volume series: The New Testament and the People of God, Jesus and the Victory of God, and The Resurrection of the Son of God.
In these books, Wright offers a historical, theological, and literary study of first-century Judaism and Christianity, beginning with an introduction to the historical and theological condition of the earliest Christians. Next, Wright provides a contribution the current quest for the historical Jesus, offering his own defense of Jesus’ historicity and its impact on Christian belief and practice. These first volumes set the scene for Wright’s massive examination of the resurrection—both resurrection in general and of Jesus in particular—beginning with Paul and working through the end of the second century.
Unique in his ability to summarize and synthesize wide-ranging and complex theological concepts, Wright is detailed, yet concise; scholarly, yet accessible. He provides a comprehensive survey of the critical topics on the study of Jesus. These books are important additions to the libraries of New Testament scholars and historians of Christianity.
