The former bishop of Durham, United Kingdom, Wright currently serves as the chair of New Testament and Early Christianity in the School of Divinity at the University of St. Andrews. For 20 years, he taught New Testament studies at Cambridge, McGill, and Oxford universities, and he has been featured on ABC News, DatelineThe Colbert Report, and Fresh Air

Wright, who has been called "the C.S. Lewis for our time," is the award-winning author of nearly 60 books, including After You BelieveSurprised by HopeSimply Christian, andThe Challenge of Jesus, as well as the much-heralded series Christian Origins and the Question of God. In his newest book, The Case for the Psalms: Why They Are Essential, he makes an argument for why Christians must read, pray, sing, and live the Psalms.

Writes Publishers Weekly about The Case for the Psalms, "Wright ... knows the Bible about as well as he knows his name .... The author's reflections are pastoral, urging the reader to understand and then pray and sing the Psalms."
