Larry Hurtado offers his Thoughts on Wright’s Paul Book

Larry Hurtado has begun to offer some thoughts on Wright’s Paul and the Faithfulness of God.

Part One: “Paul and the Faithfulness of God”: Wright’s big Opus
Part Two: “Paul and the Faithfulness of God”: 2nd Posting

I enjoy posts like these! Hurtado is more than qualified to discuss Wright’s work, and you will find much food for thought here.

My own observations on PFG are similar to Hurtado. I would agree with him that vol. 1 was more than a bit wordy. I mentioned on a number of occasions that if you have already read The New Testament and the People of God and Jesus and the Victory of God then you can skim most of the first volume. Wright is an engaging and entertaining writer, but I think sometimes he lets his creativity and style get the best of him.
