N. T. Wright on Moo

"Moo is in a different category again. Doug Moo, I would say, is a much greater Pauline scholar than either of the two [D. A. Carson and John Piper] I just mentioned. One of the things I really respect about Doug Moo is that he is constantly grappling with the text. Where he hears the text saying something which is not what his tradition would have said, he will go with the text. I won’t always agree with his exegesis, but there is a relentless scholarly honesty about him which I really tip my hat off to." [1]
