Christian Origins and the Question of God Series (4 vols.)
SPCK, Fortress Press 1992–2013
This collection contains the first four books of N. T. Wright’s highly-praised Christian Origins and the Question of God series. Included here are The New Testament and the People of God, Jesus and the Victory of God, The Resurrection of the Son of God, and the latest, Paul and the Faithfulness of God. As an important scholar of the New Testament and a prolific author and lecturer, Wright’s works have been highly influential in the study of Jesus, Paul, and early Christianity.
In the first volume of the series, 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 contributes to the current quest for the historical Jesus, offering his own defense of Jesus’ historicity and its impact on Christian belief and practice in Jesus and the Victory of God. Wright then examines resurrection—both resurrection in general and of Jesus in particular—beginning with Paul, and working through the end of the second century in the third volume, The Resurrection of the Son of God. The highly anticipated fourth volume, Paul and the Faithfulness of God, is the mature summation of a lifetime of study. This landmark volume pays a rich tribute to the breadth and depth of the Apostle Paul’s vision, and offers an unparalleled wealth of detailed insights into his life, times, and impact.
