“Being Transformed by the Renewing of the Mind”—that is the goal of this course and one of the Apostle Paul’s own goals for his readers. Paul and His Letter to the Galatians is intended to take you into an in-depth understanding of one of the New Testament’s most foundational writings. We will go section by section with lectures by Prof. N. T. Wright. The course includes reading assignments in Paul for Everyone: Galatians and Thessalonians by N. T. Wright, questions to encourage reflection and interaction about application of the material to life, and quizzes to help test comprehension of both reading material and the video lectures.
A fellow and chaplain at Cambridge from 1978 to 1981, he then served as assistant professor of New Testament language and literature at McGill University in Montreal. Before becoming a chaplain, tutor, lecturer, and fellow at Oxford in 1986, Wright served as dean of Lichfield Cathedral, canon theologian of Westminster Abbey, and bishop of Durham.
His academic work has usually been published under the name “N. T. Wright,” but works such as What St. Paul Really Said and Simply Christian, aimed at a more popular readership, were published under the less formal name of “Tom Wright.”
