Descrizione

In this definitive biography, renowned Bible scholar, Anglican bishop, and bestselling author N. T. Wright offers a radical look at the apostle Paul, illuminating the humanity and remarkable achievements of this intellectual who invented Christian theology—transforming a faith and changing the world.

For centuries, Paul, the apostle who "saw the light on the Road to Damascus" and made a miraculous conversion from zealous Pharisee persecutor to devoted follower of Christ, has been one of the church's most widely cited saints. While his influence on Christianity has been profound, N. T. Wright argues that Bible scholars and pastors have focused so much attention on Paul's letters and theology that they have too often overlooked the essence of the man's life and the extreme unlikelihood of what he achieved.

To Wright, "The problem is that Paul is central to any understanding of earliest Christianity, yet Paul was a Jew; for many generations Christians of all kinds have struggled to put this together." Wright contends that our knowledge of Paul and appreciation for his legacy cannot be complete without an understanding of his Jewish heritage. Giving us a thoughtful, in-depth exploration of the human and intellectual drama that shaped Paul, Wright provides greater clarity of the apostle's writings, thoughts, and ideas and helps us see them in a fresh, innovative way.

Paul is a compelling modern biography that reveals the apostle's greater role in Christian history—as an inventor of new paradigms for how we understand Jesus and what he accomplished—and celebrates his stature as one of the most effective and influential intellectuals in human history.

  • (4/5)
    Well written. Wright gives a personal and lively perspective on the Apostle Paul. Scholarly in its content but accessible to all and a resource worth reading.
  • (5/5)
    This is an excellent book! As one would expect from NT Wright.
  • (5/5)
    Wow! I am always reluctant to use the word genius but you have to hand it to Tom Wright as he is the complete master of his material and his subject. What I would really like is for him to reduce the book to about 12 illustrated lectures and then I would feel that I knew Paul
  • (5/5)
    N. T. Wright is such a great thinker and scholar.
    Many things are controversial but in the end are not controversial because they are based on clear reasoning and on historical accuracy. I love the man and his works. This is also happens to
    Be a great book.
  • (5/5)
    An informative and gripping way to explore Paul, the man behind the letters.

    A must read for all Christians. Paul has long been my favorite apostle to study, but this work has educated me beyond what I could have imagined.

    I mentioned to our pastor that I had just finished N.T. Wright's latest history of Paul. He replied that, "anything written by N.T. Wright is bound to be worthwhile". And he was, of course, right. After being apprised of Paul's (then Saul) upbringing highlighted by his family's drill on Hebrew law and traditions, my understanding of Paul's teachings and his courage to stay on message is wonderfully fleshed out. Paul uses his background as a scholar to reinforce his commitment to The Word, i.e., Paul has done his due diligence and has facts at his fingertips. My lifelong impression of Paul was that of a upright, didactic theoretician, brilliant but probably humorless. Dr. Wright's calm voice created in my mind Paul as an everyman's apostle. He maintains his everyday life while drawing on a fully developed sense of humor and the absurd.
