University of St Andrews theologian publishes lifetime’s work
Respected theologian Professor NT Wright will be signing copies of his latest book at a special event at the University of St Andrews this week.
Paul and the Faithfulness of God is a comprehensive, long anticipated exposition of the key figure of Paul in Christianity, and is the culmination of a lifetime’s work by the author.
Professor Wright, Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St Andrews, is a former Bishop of Durham. He is also one of the world’s leading contemporary interpreters of Paul’s thinking, and has previously written more than seventy books.
Prof Wright will give a lecture at Parliament Hall in the town on Friday (31 January) on the two-volume text and will have copies of his explorations of Paul’s thought available for signing, at a discounted rate.
Published by The Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge (SPCK), the text takes in the Jewish, Greek and Roman, as well as cultural, philosophical contexts of Paul’s activity and thinking.
Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, said: “Tom Wright’s long-awaited full-length study of St Paul will not in any way disappoint the high expectations that surround it.
“From the very first sentence, it holds the attention, arguing a strong, persuasive, coherent and fresh case, supported by immense scholarship and comprehensive theological intelligence.”
The lecture and signing will begin at 6pm at the University of St Andrews, Parliament Hall, South Street, St Andrews on Friday 31 January.
