God and the Faithfulness of Paul

9781506421674The American edition of this volume is being published by Fortress.

N. T. Wright’s magnum opus Paul and the Faithfulness of God is a landmark study on the history and thought of the apostle Paul. This volume brings together a stellar group of international scholars to critically assess an array of issues in Wright’s work.

Essays in Part I set Wright in the context of other Pauline theologies. Part II addresses methodological issues in Wright’s approach, including critical realism, historiography, intertextuality, and narrative. In Part III, on context, scholars measure Wright’s representation of early Judaism, Greek philosophy, paganism, and the Roman Empire. Part IV turns to Wright’s exegetical decisions regarding law, covenant, and election, the “New Perspective,” justification and redemption, Christology, Spirit, eschatology, and ethics. Part V at last speaks to the implications of Wright’s work for the church’s theology, sacraments, and mission, and for global responsibility in a “postmodern” age. The volume includes a critical response from Wright himself.

    Oh Joy, 800+ pages of Fortress’s wretched font and typesetting.

    Well, at least the typesetting is the original one. 🙂
    And if printing quality is of importance to you, you probably have to go with the MS edition … 😉
