Product Description

Review

'It is difficult to know which feature of it is to be admired the most: the immense erudition - the lively examples - the integration of so many different approaches and disciplines - the easy intelligibility of the writing - the lucid ordering of the argument.' --Jack Dean Kingsbury, Professor Emeritus of Biblical Theology, Union Theological Seminary, Virginia

'It is closely written, but witty and enlivened by homely examples. The author s range of erudition is impressive, but his judgement no less so. An inspiring start to an ambitious project.' --The Catholic Herald

'Eminently accessible to students; scholars will find it interesting and provocative. It deserves a place of privilege on the bookshelf of any serious student of the New Testament.' --The Expository Times

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Byzantium on 16 April 2014
I first read this some years ago, so this review is for the original Fortress paperback edition, but as this is a reissue,perfectly valid. . N T "Tom" Wright is I believe the most pre-eminent New Testament scholar alive today. He is "sound" in that he is a devout Christian and extremely articulate. He was the Bishop of Durham before retiring and taking up the post of Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at St Mary's College in the University of St Andrews in Scotland. And what a loss to the C of E. . . . Now, addressing this book. This is the first in a -to say the least- ambitious series "Christian Origins and the Question of God". I believe this was meant to be the first of five volumes, but now six volumes are planned:
The first four are:
-The New Testament and the People of God: Christian Origins and the Question of God 1, Augsburg Fortress, 1992.
-Jesus and the Victory of God: Christian Origins and the Question of God 2, Augsburg Fortress, 1996, ISBN 978-0800626822.
-The Resurrection of the Son of God: Christian Origins and the Question of God 3, Augsburg Fortress, 2003.
-Paul and the Faithfulness of God, Release Date: Thursday, 24 October 2013 (UK) and Friday, 1 November 2013 (USA).

Wright's second volume "Jesus and the Victory of God" is a close as you can get in the academic theological field to a best seller, and was widely praised on it's publication.

I have to say that although quite a dedicated reader, it took me the better part of a year to finish "The New Testament and the People of God". This was partly because I was reading other books at the same time, but also because there was so much to take in.
