Critique of NT Wright’s New Perspective on Paul

I (Grant) have found in exegetical and expositional studies that the New Perspective on Paul cannot be found in the New Testament; that is, there is no extant statement that formulates that philosophy in Scripture. In my view, it is a system that interpolates a preconceived viewpoint on the Bible. Please find some critiques by others of the New Perspective in the following articles.
