Description

Twenty years on from its original appearance, this ground-breaking first volume in N. T. Wright’s magisterial series, Christian Origins and the Question of God, still stands as a major point of reference for students of the New Testament and early Christianity. This latest impression has been completely reset to make Wright’s elegant and engrossing text more readable – both in printed and digital formats.

The sweep of Wright’s project as a whole is breathtaking. It is impossible to give a fair assessment of his achievement without sounding grandiose: no New Testament scholar since Bultmann has even attempted – let alone achieved – such an innovative and comprehensive account of New Testament history and theology. Richard B. Hays, Professor of New Testament, Duke Divinity School, North Carolina


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


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. The Expository Times


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. Jack Dean Kingsbury, Professor Emeritus of Biblical Theology,Union Theological Seminary, Virginia
