"- '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 ever attempted - let alone achieved - such an innovative and comprehensive account of New Testament history and theology.' Richard B. Hays on The New Testament and the People of God --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
N.T. Wright is Canon Theologian of Westminster Abbey. He formerly taught at Cambridge, Montreal, and Oxford. His Fortress Press publications include The Climax of the Covenant (1990), The Contemporary Quest for Jesus (2002); and the first two volumes in this widely heralded series: The New Testament and the People of God (1992) and Jesus and the Victory of God (1996).
Mental workout to finish, but Wright makes some good points. Definitely counts as evidence favoring the Resurrection, though it may not be a home run.Published 2 months ago by Jordan Droira
