Part of a five-volume project on the theological questions surrounding the origins of Christianity, this book offers a reappraisal of literary, historical and theological readings of the New Testament, arguing for a form of "critical realism" that facilitates different readings of the text.

This, the first volume of Wright's monumental series, should be required reading for people wanting to study the NT. The first part of the book grounds his study in a critical-realist epistemology, which may bore some readers, but is crucial in establishing his approach. The rest of the book, per NTW, grounds the NT in 1st-century Judaism, which is extremely beneficial. All in all, well worth the read.
