A wonderful book! It has all the marks of a classic. Wright tackles the most interesting and difficult issues surrounding Paul, integrating historical, literary, philosophical and theological approaches superbly . . . He bridges the gap between Paul and today in a way that does justice to the strangeness of the first-century world while also enabling Paul to speak powerfully and relevantly now. --David F. Ford, Regius Professor of Divinity
Tom Wright's long-awaited full-length study of St Paul will not in any way disappoint the high expectations that surround it. From the very first sentence, it holds the attention, arguing a strong, persuasive, coherent and fresh case, supported by immense scholarship and comprehensive theological intelligence. --Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge
Written with elegance and humour . . . this major achievement will be a landmark in the field of Pauline studies for many years to come. --David G. Horrell, Professor of New Testament Studies
