Dan Wallace vs N.T. Wright

Dan Wallace, a New Testament Scholar at DTS, has written an article evaluating N.T. Wright's view of "Δικαιοσύνη Θεοῦ" or the righteousness of God. Wallace's conclusion is wonderful:

“it has coherence when it is not interacting with the particulars of the text, but it wreaks havoc at the lexical level for it is self-defeating...I would view Wright’s synthesis of Romans as a brilliant failure—brilliant because of how coherent it is, but a failure because it sits three feet above the text at all points where it would be inconvenient to wrestle with what the text actually says.”
