N.T. Wright has been somewhat of a hero of mine for a while now. I must admit that I do not agree with him on all points and he tends to be a bit repetitive; however, I could say this of many authors. Wright is one of my heros because he is is cross-disciplinary. He is a historian, a theologian, biblical exegete, a pastor, and a good writer to boot. NTPG reflects this diversity of roles in the best way.
