Blending scholarly thinking with a conversational style, N. T. Wright helps us to negotiate the final book of the Bible, regarded by many as the most difficult to understand. He encourages us to see how the Revelation of John offers one of the clearest, sharpest visions of God’s ultimate purpose for the whole of creation: the overthrow of evil and the victory of God. In a world that often seems filled with violence, hatred, and suspicion, John’s glorious images of the end of days are a clarion call to all Christians to be tireless, faithful witnesses of God’s love.

Author Bio

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.”
