Overview

At the 2010 Wheaton Theology Conference, leading New Testament scholar N. T. Wright and nine other prominent biblical scholars and theologians gathered to consider Wright's prolific body of work. Compiled from their presentations, this volume includes Tom Wright's two main addresses, one on the state of scholarship regarding Jesus and the other on the state of scholarship regarding the apostle Paul. The other nine essays critically interact with these two major themes of Wright's works.

Much appreciation is shown, overviews are given, perspective is provided and some pointed questions are also raised. Together these essays represent the best of critical yet charitable dialogue among serious and rigorous scholars on theological themes vital to Christian faith that will propel New Testament scholarship for the next decade to come.

Editorial Reviews

James W. Thompson
"Both scholars and ministerial practitioners will benefit from this guide to Wright's work. The dialogue between Wright and his critics results in the clarification of numerous questions that he has raised in the last two decades. Wright's integration of exegesis, theology, and the practical concerns in the life of the church also provides the basis for continuing dialogue."
Michael F. Bird
"This is a fabulous, learned, and enjoyable cohort of essays in dialogue with one of the most influential Christian scholars of our time. It celebrates Wright's work, but he does not receive a free run on any subject either. It is well worth reading for those interested in the interface between biblical studies and systematic theology."
Wheaton Alumni Magazine
"This book propels New Testament scholarship into the next decade."
