3/19/2014

N.T. WrightThe University of St. Thomas is fortunate to have three outstanding speakers giving lectures on campus in the month of March. These speakers include N.T. Wright, one of the world's leading Bible scholars; Thomas Cardinal Collins, the Archbishop of Toronto; and Dr. Andrew Bacevich, professor of international relations and history at Boston University.

“Prayer Meets Theology: Paul’s Vision of Christian Transformation”

Watch the Livestream N.T. Wright Lecture.​

N. T. Wright is the former Bishop of Durham in the Church of England and one of the world's leading Bible scholars. The author of over sixty books ranging from scholarly studies to books for a more popular audience, Wright's audiences range from viewers of ABC News and The Colbert Report to attendees of various scholarly and ministry conferences, such as the Society of Biblical Literature and Duke Divinity School Pastor's Conference, and numerous other speaking and teaching engagements. 

Now research professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St Andrews, Wright's current scholarly projects include planned additions to the Christian Origins and the Question of God series and a large-scale commentary on Paul's letter to the Philippians. Paul and the Faithfulness of God will release along with Pauline Perspectives—a collection of Wright's most important lectures and articles on subjects related to Paul's life, ministry, and theology. Finally, a second companion volume Paul and His Recent Interpreters—an exploration of Pauline scholarship over the last fifty years will be published in 2014.
