Overview

This highly anticipated two-part fourth volume in N.T. Wright’s magisterial series, Christian Origins and the Question of God, is destined to become the standard reference point on the subject for all serious students of the Bible and theology. The mature summation of a lifetime’s study, this landmark volume pays a rich tribute to the breadth and depth of the apostle’s vision, and offers an unparalleled wealth of detailed insights into his life, times, and enduring impact.

Wright carefully explores the whole context of Paul’s thought and activity—Jewish, Greek, and Roman, cultural, philosophical, religious, and imperial—and shows how the apostle’s worldview and theology enabled him to engage with the many-sided complexities of first-century life that his churches were facing. Wright also provides close and illuminating readings of the letters and other primary sources, along with critical insights into the major twists and turns of exegetical and theological debate in the vast secondary literature. The result is a rounded and profoundly compelling account of the man who became the world’s first, and greatest, Christian theologian.

This volume is essential reading for anyone with a serious interest in Paul and his continuing relevance for today. Logos Bible Software dramatically improves the value of the collection by enabling you to find what you’re looking for with unparalleled speed and precision. The Logos edition is fully searchable and easily accessible. Scripture passages link directly to your preferred English translation and to the original language texts, and important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of resources in your digital library.

Don’t forget to check out N.T. Wright’s latest volume in this series, Paul and His Recent Interpreters.

N. T. Wright

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.”

    I love this book, but Logos had better learn to be competitive with their prices. I purchased this work for Kindle for 7.99 and here it is ten times that amount. No amount of search indexing is worth that price hike.

    I must say I very much enjoyed this book. Once again Tom Wright has given me much to think about, and even when I don't agree (or perhaps not totally agree) with him, I do appreciate his argument. I would argue, that though this is a massive work (over 1500 pages), I do believe you should read the 3 previous volumes in Wright's Christian Origins and the People of God. I've now read them (and this is my first reading) back-to-back, and believe I have benefited greatly from this exercise. Paul in many academic / scholarly works has always seemed very 2 dimensional - often portrayed as having only one purpose or one style - and I've always found these very wanting when compared to the Paul of the New Testament. Wright however presents a very 3 dimensional Paul - a Paul who seems very real whilst at the same time very much being the Paul of the New Testament. Paul comes across as being very Jewish (in the Second Temple / 1st Century understanding of that) and very Messiah-oriented - that is, Paul saw Jesus as the Messiah that Israel had been waiting for, as the fulfilment of everything that the God of Israel had planned and announced in Scripture. Wright places Paul firmly in the world of 1st Century Rome, with good comparisons with Greek thought and understanding. Of course, this book is not written as an Evangelical commentary on Paul - rather, like the previous volumes, Wright writes as a Historian, as a scholar to other scholars. Whilst I would've enjoyed a section looking at the Pastoral Epistles, I do understand why he doesn't given this context. And as a scholarly work, this has extensive footnotes and impressive references and indices. Very worthwhile read!
