Many have heard conflicting reports of N.T. Wright and the worth of reading his books. Some uncritically follow him, and some stand back in fear. Some may wonder why I am reading Wright’s epic Paul and the Faithfulness of God. Speaking for myself, my first impression of Wright was wariness of him and his writings, and it took some time to overcome that first (mistaken, I believe) opinion. I certainly don’t agree with everything Wright says, but I appreciate much of what he says, and how he communicates it. I believe we are on ‘the same side’, so to speak.
