Today I am beyond thrilled to introduce one of today’s best known and respected New Testament scholars, N.T. Wright, as a guest in our ongoing interview series.
Wright is the author of over 100 books, including the popular Surprised by Hope and Simply Christian. His full-scale works—The New Testament and the People of God, Jesus and the Victory of God, and The Resurrection of the Son of God—are part of a projected six-volume series entitled Christian Origins and the Question of God. He is also the author of multiple articles, essays, and sermons, many of which you can access here. (Wright usually publishes as N.T. Wright when writing academic work, or Tom Wright when writing for a more popular readership.)
Wright was the Bishop of Durham in the Church of England from 2003 until his retirement in 2010. He is currently Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at St. Mary’s College, University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
Like a lot of you, I’ve been hugely impacted by Wright’s work and am so grateful for the ways in which he has helped me love Scripture, and the Christ to whom it points, better. One thing I have always appreciated about him is his commitment to teaching God's people, not just the intellectual elite, but all who want to know and follow Jesus.
If you have a question for Wright, leave it in the comment section. Be sure to utilize the "like" feature so we can get a sense of what questions are of most interest to readers. After 24-hours, I'll pose five of the most popular questions to Wright and then post his responses as soon as he sends them to me. (I can only choose five questions this time because this guy has, you know, a few volumes to write!)
*** Update: Questions have been chosen! Thank you so much for your participation. Wish we could submit them all. ***
