Essays in Honour of N. T. Wright

CONGRATULATIONS TO MY ST. ANDREWS COLLEAGUE PROF. N. T. WRIGHT, who was presented with a Festschrift at the SBL Annual Meeting in Denver last week:
Eric Lewellen and John Anthony Dunne (eds.), One God, One People, One Future: Essays In Honour Of N. T. Wright (SPCK, 2018).

N. T. Wright is widely regarded as the most exciting and influential biblical scholar in the world today. These essays throw a spotlight on his contribution to New Testament theology and interpretation over the past four decades.

The structure is three-fold, corresponding to the three areas of classic Jewish theology that Wright views as starting points for discerning the shape of New Testament theology: monotheism, election and eschatology. The result is a book that facilitates a deep appreciation of key areas of current scholarly debate, and of Wright’s distinctive contribution to our understanding of the issues.

The contributors are world class scholars, including Richard Hays (Duke), Richard Bauckham (St Andrews, Emeritus), James Dunn (Durham, Emeritus), Michael Gorman (St Mary’s Seminary & University), David Horrell (Exeter), Edith Humphrey (Pittsburgh), Bruce Longenecker (Baylor), Oliver O’Donovan (Oxford, Emeritus), Ben Witherington (Asbury), and others.
