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 Paul's thoughts after him and constantly to be stirred up to fresh glimpses of God's ways and purposes with the world and with us strange human creatures.

Wright's 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 Paul's thought and its pertinence for the church today. Download and start listening now!

    " I had to read this book for class, so perhaps I didn't enter into reading this book with the most enthusiastic attitude. To start my knowledge of Paul is poor, so there might have been something I would have found more interesting I had the full story in my memory bank. I was not a huge fan of this book. I understand the intent of the book was to start a conversation, but it fails because the theories that it creates are pretty poor. "

    " This was a very dense book. I did not expect it to be such. However, it was a wonderful read. N.T. wright presented a very concise and yet thorough presentation of his Pauline Perspective in light of historical Pauline studies. It was a great introduction to that topic, though it might be a little difficult for some people to get into right away. If you work through though you will have a better understanding of St. Paul and his writings. "

    " Based on a set of lectures, this book assumes a lot from readers - that you understand the pauline scholarship at at least a beginner's level. So it can be dense at timss. Full of interesting insights and analysis, consistnt with Wright's "traditionalist" stance. I found it persuasive and helpful in understanding Paul. "

    " A great, concise work on understanding the many worlds Paul straddled and which gave shape to his writings. A great primer on "The New Perspective on Paul." "
