Publisher's Summary

For me," says N.T.Wright, "there has been no more stimulating exercise, for the mind, the heart, the imagination and the spirit, than trying to think Paul's thoughts after him and constantly to be stirred up to fresh glimpses of God's ways and purposes with the world and with us strange human creatures." Wright's accessible new volume, built on his Cambridge University Hulsean Lectures of 2004, takes a fresh look at Paul in light of recent understandings of his Jewish roots, his attitude toward the Roman Empire, and his unique reframing of Jewish symbols in relation to his experience of the risen Christ. Then Wright attempts a short systematic account of the main theological contours of Paul's thought and its pertinence for the church today.

Like reading a commentary on audio

Definitely a hard listen. It's like reading a commentary on audio. I found myself having to rewind to listen again to what he says many times. If you want to really understand what he's saying I would suggest buying the book instead for this.

Interesting and Deep

I liked this book, but honestly, it was difficult to get through. The book is deep and not always easy to understand. I wish the writing was a little easier to grasp. Often I found the language complex when simplicity would have been more appropriate.

Why bother reading anyone else?

NT Wright shows how Paul should be read and understood by taking the reader back in time. He makes sense of Paul by analysing the culture that he lived in and the way his audience understood their place in the big story or meta narrative.
