Description


Paul’s letter to the Romans has been one of the most important single documents in the history of the church, and indeed of the whole world. Most Christians have a nodding acquaintance with bits of it; few would claim to have mastered its complex arguments, its sudden changes of mood, or even the question of why Paul wrote it in the first place. This course begins with a bird’s eye view of the letter, seeing it holistically before moving to the parts. Then Professor Wright focuses on the individual sections, assessing their contribution to that whole. He examines some of the most controversial and difficult passages in detail (3:21-4:25, 7:7-8:11 and 9-11) before standing back and capturing a last awesome view of the breathtaking theological and missionary vision which Paul offers to his readers.



N. Thomas Wright is Canon Theologian of Westminster Abbey in England and a respected New Testament scholar. His books include The Original Jesus, The Challenge of Jesus, Jesus and the Victory of God and The Millennium Myth.

Eye opening!
I enjoyed it greatly. I like how Wright believes context is king!

Weighty
Excellent book spoken by the author. Though it is deep, it is understandable because of the excellent vocal expression by NT Wright. Still I need to listen to it about 3x.

Inspired
I concur with previous reviewers....the Letter is inspired and the teaching inspirational. In some ways the listener is almost required to think in three dimensions (or more!) to fully comprehend the multi-layered approach Paul adopts. As Prof. Wright describes his early analytical methodology of drawing coloured lines to link verses of the text stuck onto a board is probably the most practical approach. Needless to say an expanded treatment would probably take full year and no doubt fill one of NTW's door stops....but would be great reading, nonetheless.
