My Review of NT Wright’s PFG Now Published with Interpretation (Gupta)

ntwright8The July 2015 issue of Interpretation is now online and contains my review of NT Wright’s Paul and the Faithfulness of God (subscriber-access only, sorry!). I thought PFG was a beast to read, but Wright is quite brilliant on many points and especially wrestled with first-century Greek religion and philosophy as new material he has not published elsewhere. I am not convinced by his reading of justification, but I do think that his defense of anti-empire rhetoric/theology in Paul (esp over and against Barclay’s critiques) is good.

I am eager to see where his scholarship goes next. He is working on commentaries on Philippians (ICC) and Galatians (Two Horizons). Both of these will be important contributions, I am sure.
