This companion volume to Paul and the Faithfulness of God and Paul and His Recent Interpreters brings together N. T. Wright's most important articles on Paul and his letters over the last three decades. The book begins with Wright's auspicious essay of 1978, when as a young, aspiring scholar he gave the annual Tyndale lecture in Cambridge, and proposed, for the first time, "a new perspective" on Pauline theology. The book ends with an expanded version of a paper he gave in Leuven in 2012, when as a seasoned scholar at the height of his powers, he explored the foundational role of Abraham in Romans and Galatians.

This significant volume draws together an exceptional list of contributors to honor the life and work of Victor Paul Furnish. Doing credit to the focus and character of Furnish’s career as a scholar, educator, and churchman, the individual essays, and the volume as a whole, have been written in a way that renders them accessible to seminary students in the classroom and that builds substantially on Furnish’s own work. The book is structured in three parts: (1) Theology and Ethics in Paul (focusing on individual Pauline texts and on the broader themes, foundations, and context of Paul’s theological and ethical thought); (2) Theology and Ethics in Paul’s Earliest Interpreters (both in the NT and in the church which came to accept Paul’s letters as canonical); and (3) Paul in Contemporary Theology and Ethics (engaging Furnish’s own work as well as that of his colleagues and students in the area of Pauline theology and ethics).

‘A biography of St Paul by his greatest living interpreter: it is a dream come true. This is the book that I had always hoped Tom Wright might write, while doubting that he ever would. And now here it is – and, my goodness, it does not disappoint!’ Tom Holland, author of Rubicon: The Triumph and Tragedy of the Roman Republic ‘In eloquent and inviting prose, one of the world’s leading New Testament scholars retells the story behind the story, the story of the Apostle Paul whose letters have shaped so much of subsequent history. Drawing on his decades of acquaintance with Paul, both informed on other Pauline scholarship and ready to reread Paul independently where needed, Wright brings forth treasures both old and new. A master teacher here communicates Paul in language every reader can understand.’ Craig S. Keener, Professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary, Kentucky ‘Wright’s excellent book not only brings Paul to life but places that life in the complex and overlapping array of Jewish and non-Jewish communities, all set within the Roman empire. The result provides much to think about both for students of Paul and the early Christian communities of which he was so significant a founder and shaper, but also for anyone interested in the history of the first century of the Christian era.’ John Richardson, Emeritus Professor of Classics, University of Edinburgh ‘An enthralling journey into the mind of Paul by one of the great theologians of our time, a work full of insight, depth and generosity of understanding.’ Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks ‘Tom Wright is, as always, brilliant at distilling immense scholarship into vivid, clear and accessible form.’ Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge

Here, finally, is a much-needed review and analysis of the divergent interpretations of Paul. With a clear head and winsome sense of humor, Stephen Westerholm compares the traditional understanding of Paul to more recent readings, drawing on the writings of key figures in the debate both past and present. Westerholm first offers a detailed portrait of the "Lutheran" Paul, including the way such theologians as Augustine, Luther, Calvin, and Wesley have traditionally interpreted "justification by faith" to mean that God declares sinners "righteous" by his grace apart from "works." Westerholm then explores how Paul has fared in the twentieth century, in which "New Perspective" readings of Paul see him teaching that Gentiles need not become Jews or observe Jewish law to be God's people. The final section of the book looks anew at disputed areas of Paul's theological language and offers compelling discussion on the place of both justification by faith and Mosaic law in divine redemption.
