Two Marginalia Reviews of N.T. Wright’s PFG

Two Marginalia Reviews of N.T. Wright’s PFG January 11, 2015

Over at the Marginalia Review of Books are two reviews of N.T. Wright’s Paul and the Faithfulness of God by Douglas Campbell and Michael Thate.

Campbell thinks that Wright’s view of Judaism remains skewed as “an account of Judaism that is imposed, monolithic, and yet internally incoherent — a classic instance of othering.” But even so, he says that “at the end of the day, the wheat that Wright asks us to harvest is a comprehensive, scripturally informed, and theologically engaged reading of the apostle, and these are deeply impoverished dimensions in much of the apostle’s interpretation today. Anything that gets scholars thinking hard about Paul in these terms — however much the specifics might be debated — is in my view fundamentally a very good thing.

Thate is more interested in the political theology of PFG.
