Description

"For me," says N.T. Wright, "there has been no more stimulating exercise, for the mind, the heart, the imagination and the spirit, than trying to think Paul's thoughts after him and constantly to be stirred up to fresh glimpses of God's ways and purposes with the world and with us strange human creatures." Wright's accessible new volume, built on his Cambridge University Hulsean Lectures of 2004, takes a fresh look at Paul in light of recent understandings of his Jewish roots, his attitude toward the Roman Empire, and his unique reframing of Jewish symbols in relation to his experience of the risen Christ. Then Wright attempts a short systematic account of the main theological contours of Paul's thought and its pertinence for the church today.

Professional reviews

"Wright's book, taken from his lectures, gives a solid outline of the Apostle Paul's theology. Simon Vance captures the essence of Wright's treatise, giving full attention to complex details as he explicates Paul's thoughts. Part One of the book discusses Paul's world and his legacy, giving a general introduction to Pauline thought. The following chapters focus on major biblical themes for the purpose of providing a historical and cultural Pauline worldview. With effortless narration, Vance describes Paul as belonging to the "called out ones," those set apart for Christ. This is not an easy listen. It should be sipped--like a full-bodied wine. G.D.W.
