He is the award-winning author of over eighty books and hundreds of articles, including After You Believe, Surprised by Hope, Simply Christian, The Challenge of Jesus, and The Meaning of Jesus (coauthored with Marcus Borg).

Wright has been called the most prolific biblical scholar in a generation, perhaps the most important apologist for the Christian faith since C. S. Lewis. He has written the most extensive series of popular commentaries on the New Testament since William Barclay.

Wright is highly regarded in academic and theological circles for his writing, particularly his series “Christian Origins and the Question of God,” published over four volumes with two more planned. The third volume, The Resurrection of the Son of God, is considered by many pastors and theologians to be a seminal Christian work on the resurrection of the historical Jesus. The recently released fourth volume, Paul and the Faithfulness of God, is hailed as Wright's magnum opus.
