His groundbreaking works have reshaped our understanding of the earliest Christians—and New Testament scholarship.
His writing and teaching have impacted countless followers of Jesus, so much so that an article in Christianity Today states that “when Wright speaks, preaches, or writes, folks say they see Jesus, and lives are transformed.”1
He’s written more than 70 books on topics ranging from justification to the justice of God to Jesus’ final days. And this doesn’t count books he’s coauthored (like the Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible) or courses he’s taught (the N. T. Wright Course Bundle is a compelling journey through Paul’s letters to the Galatians, Ephesians, and Philippians as well as the Acts of the apostles).
And now, all that scholarship culminates in N. T. Wright’s latest release: a 900+ page, definitive overview of the New Testament as seen through first-century eyes. A dream-team collaboration between Wright and New Testament scholar Michael F. Bird, The New Testament in Its World reveals the New Testament as history, literature, and theology, all at once.
This is the book every scholar, pastor, and armchair theologian will be talking about for years to come.
And when you pre-order the Logos edition, you’ll be able to read it as soon as it’s released in November. Plus, your purchase includes free Bible software to enable further exploration. (After you place your order, we’ll send you an email explaining how to download your software.)
