In the last two decades N. T. Wright has produced a succession of connected volumes that explore the nature and origins of Christianity. Wright has consistently argued that Christianity, while indebted to Second Temple Judaism, represents a significant development. With major books on method and background, Jesus, and the resurrection already in print, in Paul and the Faithfulness of God, Wright added a comprehensive study of the Apostle to the Gentiles.

The Paul Debate is essential reading for those who both agree and disagree with Wright, and for all who want to understand the compelling voice of one of the most read and productive Pauline scholars in the past decades.

Press Reviews

N.T. Wright's magnum opus, Paul and the Faithfulness of God, now has a little brother in The Paul Debate. . . Among the abundance of volumes that Wright has written, this one is perhaps the most readable and the most distilled summation of Wright's account of the Apostle Paul. Vintage Wright!

- Michael F. Bird, Lecturer in Theology at Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia

In The Paul Debate, Tom Wright, with the panache, verve, and wit we have all come to expect from him, restates many of his more contentious views in a succinct and easily digestible form. Whether one will end up agreeing with him or not, this volume is a particularly useful window onto the debates on apocalyptic, epistemology, justification, and more that are currently raging within Pauline studies.

- Chris Tilling, Tutor and Senior Lecturer in New Testament Studies at St Mellitus College and visiting Lecturer in Theology at King’s College London.

A very useful summary of Wright's views.

- Paul Richardson

A discursive treatment, written in Wright's characteristically lucid and persuasive style, that can be commended as an admirable introduction for a wide readership.

- Canon Anthony Harvey

N.T. Wright spares a week of astonishing productivity to confound his critics.

- Markus Bockmuehl

In The Paul Debate, Wright invokes that mutual discussion is an obligation on us all and dedicates the book to his critics: ‘We are engaged in a common task’. The task of interpreting Paul’s letters raises many other issues not covered in this book, but The Paul Debate is a handy primer to the debate over N. T. Wright’s Paul.
