N. T. Wright, a former Anglican bishop and a prolific writer about Jesus, Paul, and the New Testament, receives an up-close analysis in this compilation of essays originally presented at the 2010 Wheaton Theology Conference on his works. The book begins with an incisive introduction that compares and contrasts Wright�s theology and writings with those of one of the first seekers of the historical Jesus, Albert Schweitzer. The book is then divided into two sections, �Jesus and the People of God� and �Paul and the People of God.� In each section, essayists discuss various points Wright makes (or doesn�t make) in his own writings, e.g., the absence of John�s gospel in Wright�s Jesus and the Victory of God. Wright then has a chance to respond to the critiques individually and in longer overviews of his own work. Does this get wonkish at times? A little. But Wright, whose writings on religious history and theology cover such a broad spectrum, is a prime choice for this type of coverage. For larger religion collections. --Ilene Cooper

It doubles as a Festschrift of sorts for N. T. "Tom" Wright, whose books--whether academic or popular--alternatively influence and infuriate their readers, especially their evangelical readers. Its authors, though sometimes critical of Wright's theology, are also personal friends.      The book, like …
