The book that has had the biggest impact on my theology is without doubt N. T. Wright's magnificent book, The New Testament and the People of God.
As time goes by I find myself in disagreement with Wright on various issues (most especially with regard to his neo-supersessionist take on NT theology - on that I think that Wright is wrong). Nevertheless, this book continues to dominate my theological thinking as it has for the past sixteen years or so. It is fabulous!
So I say "Three cheers for Bishop Tom Wright! You have been a real blessing to the Church!"
I thought it might be fun if people commented on the single book that most impacted them. Comment away!
