climax of the covenant

I just bought Wright’s book The Climax of the Covenant.  Mainly I wanted to check out his thoughts on Romans 9-11.  It’s good, but not as detailed as I hoped for.  The section on Galatians 3 is really good.  A lot of folks think that the apostle Paul is just throwing around Scripture in this text like a modern evangelical.  Wright makes a good case that Paul is drawing from the over all context of these OT passages.   Wright’s NPP is pretty attractive in this section of Galatians.  It makes sense and it forces us to take another look at the NT’s use of the OT.
