St Jerome’s Open Letter to Donald J. Trump

Paul lies covered with worthless dust, but will rise again to glory; over you are raised costly tombs, but both you and your wealth are doomed to the burning. Have a care, I pray you, at least have a care for the riches you love. Why are even the grave-clothes of your dead made of gold? Why does not your vaunting cease even amid mourning and tears? Cannot the carcasses of rich men decay except in silk? – St Jerome

Various Thoughts on Wright’s ‘Paul and the Faithfulness of God’

“Wright’s portrait of Paul …is basically designed by the wishes of dogmatic concerns and constraints. … Luke … would be disappointed” – Becker

“PFG is not a modest book, and its author is not modest either” – Schliesser

Wright’s portrayal of the ‘old perspective’ is problematic and partly misleading. – Schliesser

“Wright lacks a precise understanding of the event of atonement…” – Stuhlmacher

“Wright is more interested in the general correctness of his reconstruction than in philological details”. – Stuhlmacher
