G. Ernest Wright’s God Who Acts: A Convergence of Anthropology, Theology, and Archaeology

Wright’s work may have been ahead of its time since the field of archaeology was radically changing during his life. Nonetheless, Wright’s blending of the three fields of Theology, Anthropology, and Archaeology might be a method modern biblical archaeologists can learn from and perhaps implement.

Therefore, this paper will first rehearse how G. Ernest Wright blended theology, anthropology, and archaeology during his prestigious career. Next, the work will contemplate the potential modern usage of Wright’s methods for today’s biblical archaeologists.

    GE Wright’s, “The God Who Acts,” is a biblical theology written by an archaeologist with special focus on God’s actions in history. This proposal would be more appropriate for the Biblical Theology study group. As someone interested in biblical theology in general and Wright’s contribution to the discipline decades past, I would be interested in hearing this paper–but not in the OT Backgrounds study group.
