Some people just don’t know what to do with Paul. Browsing a bookstore will reveal attempts to pit him against Jesus, to make him the real genius behind the traditions we know as Christianity, to render the sayings of Jesus so that they fit his ideas, to render his career as if he’s a deviation from the sayings of Jesus, and all sorts of other festive variations. Then there are writers who try to take him seriously on his own terms, someone living in an apocalyptic moment brought on by the death and resurrection of the Messiah of God, someone trying to follow a Jesus who has shaken the earth and played havoc with the heavens. N.T. Wright’s book Paul: A Biography is that kind of a book, and Christian Humanist Profiles is glad to welcome him back to the show.
