On Nov. 11, 2014, leading New Testament scholar N.T. Wright, professor of New Testament and early Christianity at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and a retired Anglican bishop, presented a lecture on "Why and How Paul Invented Christian Theology."
Do you agree or disagree with N.T. Wright's presentation? Why or Why not?

I'm not in a position to listen to an hour lecture typically, but if it's anything like his magnum opus Paul and the Faithfulness of God I generally agree. And, I'd like to see a greater emphasis on baptism and communion in his book than I recall. I'd also criticize the thinking that Paul created a systematic theology, but I think Wright would agree with that.
