Today a renewed and vigorous scholarly quest for the historical Jesus is underway. In the midst of well publicized and controversial books on Jesus, N. T. Wright's lectures and writings have been widely recognized for providing a fresh, provocative and historically credible portrait.

The Challenge of Jesus poses a double-edged challenge: to grow in our understanding of the historical Jesus within the Palestinian world of the first century, and to follow Jesus more faithfully into the postmodern world of the 21st century. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I'm not sure if it's Wright's writing style (this is the first book of his I've ever read) or that I haven't read any theology in a couple years, but I find myself rereading quite a few paragraphs just to understand his point. Intriguing so far, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lana | 2/14/2014

    " just started, so there isn't anything TOO earth-shattering, yet, but I imagine that as I keep reading, there will be some amazing revelations. plus, I really like NT Wright anyway... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 2/7/2014

    " Enjoyed it while getting frustrated by it and the paper that I had to write on it... Wrote a lot of notes on stickies (the notes that weren't a part of the paper) and put them on the passages that they went with. I will be returning to them to think further... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 2/1/2014

    " I like the historical emphasis and his last chapter on how to minister in a postmodern world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Genevieve | 1/13/2014

    " Intriguing and inspiring. Now I want to read more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg | 1/12/2014

    " One of the things I enjoy most about reading Wright is how good a job he generally does of showing how the ideas he's discussing should make a practical difference in the world. He did not do that as well in this book as some of his other works -- so was left feeling like the stakes were very low. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nigel Berry | 12/27/2013

    " Wow! Reading N.T. Wright makes my childhood teachers look lazy! I'm grateful for his insight and encouragement. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frank Peters | 7/24/2013

    " This was a very worthwhile read. The contents deserve to be mulled over at great length. Like my Dad's FF Bruce books, Wright challenges our thinking at a scholarly level while remaining God honouring in his approach. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanie | 4/30/2012

    " Excellent investigation in the the historical context of the actions and words of Christ. I found this book very helpful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phil | 11/14/2011

    " Every Christian should have to read N.T.Wright.....This book is a great summation of the thousands of pages he has written on the historical study of Jesus and his life. I will be buying it (got it from library.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 10/30/2011

    " Excellent and challenging. Worth several reads. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joel | 9/30/2011

    " Very thought provoking and motivating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Drew | 5/18/2011

    " Classic Wright; the Kingdom of God as revealed in the ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus is the center of his work. His most interesting work here is his diagnosis of and prescription for living as Christians within postmodernity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 4/11/2011

    " This is my third N.T. Wright book: "Paul", "Evil and the Justice of God", and now "The Challenge of Jesus". These three books work well together to form a coherent picture of the New Testament. I highly suggest them. Excellent. On my short list. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joel | 3/8/2011

    " Very thought provoking and motivating. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Penny | 11/20/2010

    " N.T. Wright has quickly become my favorite theologian and this book rocked my world in good way!
    I should start making a sales commission as I keep gushing over it to everyone I know! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ashlee | 9/27/2010

    " This book is written for scholars and experts in Christian religions not for the amateur religion reader... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phil | 6/29/2010

    " Best Introduction to the Gospel out there! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Henry | 2/8/2010

    " Interesting book. Not good if you're really looking to engage with Wright's ideas (he doesn't adequately support or prove his points), but great as an introduction for the reader who can discern which of his points are warrant further investigation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Genevieve | 11/7/2009

    " Intriguing and inspiring. Now I want to read more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brent | 8/6/2009

    " Combines a summary of Wright's historical Jesus research with a couple of chapters on the modern church. Held my attention and furthered my respect for NT Wright as a person betwixt and between - faithful to both scholarsly and church communities. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 7/20/2009

    " Good intro for the Quest for the Historical Jesus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 7/1/2009

    " mostly wright is brilliant in his perspectives and his explanations; ever so often, he is opposite of what i have come to understand about this most remarkable event in human history. worth reading. keep a critical eye/ear open for glitches. but overall, well worth reading, imo. "
