Paul and the Faithfulness of God
by N. T. Wright
"With magisterial vision, energetic scholarship, and lucid illustration, N. T. Wright unveils the mysteries of Paul's theological imagination."
--Sam Wells, Vicar, Saint Martin-in-the-Fields, London
This landmark book by foremost scholar N. T. Wright 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.
"I hope that this book will refresh both the church’s reading and preaching of Paul, and the perceptions of Paul in the wider world outside the church."
"N. T. Wright's long-awaited full-length study of St. Paul will not in any way disappoint." Read what Rowan Williams and other scholars are saying about Wright's new book on Paul.
"The radically new worldview in which Paul and his converts found themselves was bound to face the question 'why' at every corner, and in order to answer it, and to teach his churches to answer it for themselves, he had to speak of one particular God, and of the world, in a way nobody had done before."

Patheos blogger Michael Bird talks with N. T. Wright about his new book in this video interview.
How the God and Creation plot shapes the whole of Paul’s story-telling and stories within the Story.
We are too often, Paul says in Romans, conformed to this world, when God calls us to transformation – first, of ourselves, but also of transformed communities without which personal transformation is almost impossible.
if you have resisted Wright, for whatever reason, read this first section on Philemon and see if you don't find it convincing. I did. And every page since then has been a revelation.
What Wright does so well is recontextualize the New Testament in terms of the cultural setting and mindset.
I’m over my Paulophobia, an illness that has afflicted me and many of my friends for years. I’m ready to embrace Paul and all that he offers, and I think Wright’s book will help me do that.
