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
