Take a Class with N.T. Wright

N.T. Wright is one of the most—if not the most—well-known New Testament scholars alive today. His writings on justification have spurred much debate, and he’s been named by Christianity Today as one of the top theologians of our time. Formerly the Bishop of Durham, Wright now teaches at the internationally esteemed University of St. Andrew’s.

His academic work has usually been published under the name “N. T. Wright,” but works such as What St. Paul Really Said and Simply Christian, aimed at a more popular readership, were published under the less formal name of “Tom Wright.”

Here’s a trailer for N. T. Wright’s course on Galatians. He also has courses on Ephesians, Philippians, and Acts.

In addition to these courses, you can stock up on dozens of his most-loved books.

Learn Greek and Logos at the Same Time—so Both Stick

Confession: in seminary I used Logos as a crutch. I hovered my mouse over the word for parsing—and on I went, hover by hover, letting what I had painstakingly learned about Greek grammar slowly drip out of my brain.

My loss. [Read more…]
