Peter Stuhlmacher with Donald A. Hagner evaluate the so-called new perspective on the teaching of Paul and find it wanting. Stuhlmacher mounts a forthright and well-supported critique based on both established and more recent scholarship.
Duane Litfin, former president of Wheaton College, explores how Paul's theology of preaching can inform the church's preaching today. Through a detailed study of 1 Corinthians 1-4, Litfin shows how Paul's method of proclamation differed from Greco-Roman rhetoric and how Pauline preaching can be a model for the contemporary preaching task.
In light of recent interest in whether the Protestant Reformers interpreted Paul correctly, this edited volume enables a more careful reading of the Reformers themselves. Each chapter pairs a Reformer with a Pauline text and brings together historical theologians and biblical scholars to examine these Reformation-era readings of Paul's letters.
In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume, Trevor Burke argues that the scripture phrase "adopted as sons," while a key theological metaphor, has been misunderstood, misrepresented or neglected. He redresses the balance in this comprehensive study of the phrase. "This volume not only probes a neglected theme; it also edifies," says D. A. Carson.
Brian S. Rosner seeks to build bridges between old and new perspectives on Paul with this biblical-theological account of the apostle's complex relationship with Jewish law. This New Studies in Biblical Theology volume argues that Paul reevaluates the Law of Moses, including its repudiation as legal code, its replacement by other things, and its reappropriation as prophecy and wisdom.
In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume, David Pao offers a comprehensive and accessible study focusing on the theme of thanksgiving in the letters of the apostle Paul.
Rodney Reeves contrasts easy spiritualities of serenity and retreat with the apostle Paul's vision: a cross-shaped spirituality for fools making their way through life's trials. Responding to Paul's invitation "follow me as I follow Christ," Reeves discovers an ancient spiritual path in the letters of Paul.
James Beilby, Paul R. Eddy and Steven E. Enderlein moderate this five-way discussion on the Pauline doctrine of justification. The traditional Reformed view, the progressive Reformed view, the new perspective, the deification/theosis view and the Roman Catholic view are each given a fair hearing.
Clinton Arnold examines Paul's teaching on powers and principalities--comparing it with Jesus' teaching, Greek and Roman beliefs, and contemporary views. He concludes with biblical and practical guidelines for Christians today.
