God and the Faithfulness of Paul Ready for Pre-Order in Paperback

God and the Faithfulness of Paul Ready for Pre-Order in Paperback December 5, 2016

I’m very pleased that Fortress Press will publish a cheaper paperback version of God and the Faithfulness of Paul in March 2017 which is an amazing series of essays by an international cast of scholars evaluating N.T. Wright’s Paul and the Faithfulness of God.  Seriously, the essays by folks like Larry Hurtado, Jorg Frey, Eckhard Schnabel and others are just excellent, plus Wright’s responses are great too, makes for an awesome discussion.

N. T. Wright’s magnum opus Paul and the Faithfulness of God is a landmark study on the history and thought of the apostle Paul. This volume brings together a stellar group of international scholars to critically assess an array of issues in Wright’s work. Essays in Part I set Wright in the context of other Pauline theologies. Part II addresses methodological issues in Wright’s approach, including critical realism, historiography, intertextuality, and narrative. In Part III on context, scholars measure Wright’ representation of early Judaism, Greek philosophy, paganism, and the Roman Empire. Part IV turns to Wright’s exegetical decisions regarding law, covenant, and election, the “New Perspective,” justification and redemption, Christology, Spirit, eschatology, and ethics. Part V at last speaks to the implications of Wright’s work for the church’s theology, sacraments, and mission, and for global responsibility in a “postmodern” age.
