Monotheism Freshly Revealed in Jesus (Wright’s PFG)

Paul and the Faithfulness of GodBelieve it or not, I’m still (a year later) slogging through Wright’s Paul and the Faithfulness of God. Fans of G.K.

The Wisdom of the Greeks

Paul and the Faithfulness of GodPaul lived and worked, in fact, in at least three worlds at once” (p75), namely, Israel, Greece, and Rome. I’m working through N.T. Wright’s leviathanesque Paul and the Faithfulness of God, and in this first major ‘part’ (348 pages) he is first attempting to situate Paul in history before turning to his worldview and theology, parts 2 and 3 respectively.
