Wright sets out in fascinating detail his own compelling account of how Jesus himself understood his mission: how he believed himself called to remake Israel, the people of God, around himself; how he announced God’s judgement on the Israel of his day, especially its Temple and hierarchy; and how he saw his own movement as the divinely ordained fulfilment of Israel’s destiny.


N. T. Wright argues that this can indeed be done, and in this ground-breaking book he develops a distinctive approach to natural theology grounded in what he calls an 'epistemology of love'. This approach arises from his reflection on the significance of the ancient concept of the 'new creation' for our understanding the reality of the world, the reality of God and their relation to one another.


N. T. (Tom) Wright is Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St Andrews. Prior to that he was Bishop of Durham (2003-10), Canon Theologian of Westminster (2000–3), Dean of Lichfield (1994–99) and Fellow, Tutor and Chaplain of Worcester College, Oxford (1986–93).
Professor Wright is the author of over eighty books, including The New Testament and the People of God, Jesus and the Victory of God, The Resurrection of the Son of God, Scripture and the Authority of God, Surprised by Hope, Virtue Reborn, How God Became King, Paul and the Faithfulness of God, Paul and His Recent Interpreters, The Day the Revolution Began, Paul: A biography and (with Michael F. Bird) The New Testament in its World.
