If you don’t know who N.T. Wright is, then you’re probably not interested in theology and have stumbled upon this post by accident.
N.T. Wright has been at it for more than twenty (!) years writing the “Christian Origins and the Question of God” series. He started by setting everything up with a survey of Second Temple Judaism in The New Testament and the People of God, followed by a summary of historical Jesus scholarship Jesus and the Victory of God, and a summary of how Christianity began in The Resurrection of the Son of God.
There is now a video interview/preview of the fourth book in this series where he takes on St. Paul. Some of the more interesting things to look for in this video and the book Paul and the Faithfulness of God:
- Why Wright thinks Paul is a thinker on par with Plato and Aristotle
- Why it makes sense to start studying Paul by tackling Philemon
- Why getting into some distant heaven is not the point
I’m having trouble embedding the video, so do make the stupendous effort of clicking on the following link:
