Draws together the most important articles on Paul and his letters by distinguished scholar and author N. T. Wright.
Interpreting Paul puts into one volume Wright's most important articles on the Apostle over the last six years. It collects the essays—written for a wide variety of publications—that further his detailed reflections on Paul since the publication of his magisterial Paul and the Faithfulness of God, including such diverse investigations as:
- How and Why Paul Invented 'Christian Theology'
- How Greek was Paul's Eschatology?
- Paul and Missional Hermeneutics
- The Challenge of Fraternity in Paul
Interpreting Paul displays Wright's engaging prose, his courage to go where few have gone, and his joy to bridge the work of the academy and the church.
Here is a rich feast for any serious student of the Bible, especially of the New Testament. Detailed, incisive, and exquisitely nuanced exegesis, this collection will reward you with a clearer, deeper, and more informed appreciation of Paul and the relevance of his teaching to Christian life and thought today.
Many of the included studies have never been published or were made available only in hard-to-find larger volumes and journals.
