N. T. Wright is the bishop of Durham in the Church of England. Recently named by Christianity Today as one of the top five theologians in the world, Wright has taught New Testament studies for twenty years at Cambridge, Oxford, and McGill universities. He is the author of The New Testament and the People of God, Jesus and the Victory of God, The Resurrection of the Son of God, and numerous other books.
