This course is Part Three of a three-part course covering the whole of Paul and His Letter to the Romans. This course, Romans: Part Three, is designed to take around ten weeks to complete and stands firmly on the platform Paul has made in Romans 1–8 and connects the ides of the mercies of God discussed in chapters 9–11. Discover why the section of this Epistle in Romans 12–16 is every bit as vital as what has gone before. You will appreciate how this resounding conclusion is not merely an ethical application with rules for how to behave. Rather, what God has done in the Gospel is to construct a new community.
Nicholas Thomas “Tom” Wright (1948–) has been named by Christianity Today as one of our time’s top theologians. He is currently professor of New Testament and early Christianity at St. Andrews University. Wright holds a bachelor’s degree in theology, a master’s in Anglican ministry, and a DPhil, all from University of Oxford.
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.”
