Wright has written over 30 books.
He has completed three books in a projected six-volume scholarly series Christian Origins and the Question of God. These are:
- The New Testament and the People of God,
- Jesus and the Victory of God, and
- The Resurrection of the Son of God.
His work has been praised by scholars from a wide range of views, such as Professor James DG Dunn, Richard B. Hays and Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury. However, critics of his work are also found across the broad range of theological camps, from conservatives such as J. Ligon Duncan to liberals like Robert J. Miller.
