Summary of N.T. Wright’s Melbourne Visit

Sophie Timothy from The Bible Society (Australia) gives a good summary of N.T. Wright’s various lectures that were given in Melbourne this week. She opens with:

Theologian  N.T. Wright, who manages to be both respected and controversial at the same time, has unveiled the contents of his new book, the massive tome Paul and the Faithfulness of God, in events run by Ridley Melbourne and the Uniting Centre for Theology and Ministry in Melbourne this week. In between talks on Jesus, Israel, Paul, Paul and Israel, Paul and Empire and Paul and Justification, were a range of critical responses from a number of Australian scholars, including Mike Bird, Brian Rosner and David Starling. Wright is in Australia for the Society for New Testament Studies conference in Perth next week.
