For me, says N.T. Wright, there has been no more stimulating exercise, for the mind, the heart, the imagination and the spirit, than trying to think Pauls thoughts after him and constantly to be stirred up to fresh glimpses of Gods ways and purposes with the world and with us strange human creatures. Wrights accessible new volume, built on his Cambridge University Hulsean Lectures of 2004, takes a fresh look at Paul in light of recent understandings of his Jewish roots, his attitude toward the Roman Empire, and his unique reframing of Jewish symbols in relation to his experience of the risen Christ. Then Wright attempts a short systematic account of the main theological contours of Pauls thought and its pertinence for the church today.
