Paul: In Fresh Perspective | [N. T. Wright]

Paul: In Fresh Perspective

N.T. 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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Like reading a commentary on audio"

    Definitely a hard listen. It's like reading a commentary on audio. I found myself having to rewind to listen again to what he says many times. If you want to really understand what he's saying I would suggest buying the book instead for this.

    "Interesting and Deep"

    I liked this book, but honestly, it was difficult to get through. The book is deep and not always easy to understand. I wish the writing was a little easier to grasp. Often I found the language complex when simplicity would have been more appropriate.

    Story
    "Acessing Recent Scholarship on Paul"
    Where does Paul rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Audio books are great means of accessing information. This is a technical book on that deals with the search for the historic Paul and attempts to reframe Paul away from the superational deconstruction that led to the idea that Paul was the founder of Christianity and not Jesus. N.T. Wright is a reputable scholar and his material is very accessible and understandable for those wanting an introduction in this NT issue.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    n/a


    What does Simon Vance bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great voice and pace

    Story
    "Good Material"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a good book - the only down side is that the reader obviously did not know how to properly pronounce some of the words - especially when the original languages were referred to. It took me a few times to hear certain Greek words in the context of how he was using them to put together what he was talking about.


    What did you like best about this story?

    NT Wright's scholarship is top notch.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

    N/A


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A Refreshing Reading of Paul


    Any additional comments?

    "Not written for laymen"

    Hard book to get through, one must pay full attention and even then he is really hard to follow.
    But there are some interesting tid bits I've walked away with, so it was not necessarily a waste of time.
