Forthcoming interview with Chris VanLandingham

I'm thrilled to announce that Chris VanLandingham has kindly agreed to an interview, here on Chrisendom, about his exciting book, Judgment and Justification in Early Judaism and the Apostle Paul!

I will be sending him some questions within the next few days, soon after I have completed my two part review of the book. As Mike Bird has written an extremely helpful review article of VanLandingham's work (forthcoming in BBR), I will give particular space to a few questions Mike has already suggested I pose. However, if you have any burning questions you think I should ask Chris V, then please let me know in the comments (though I can't promise I will send all to him - I'll do the moderator thing and make a selection in a few days).

I think I mostly agree with CvL. Could you ask him to explain what Paul is trying to accomplish in regards to Abraham in Romans 4 particularly vs. 4-9? I don't agree with reformed readings here but it is clearly their strongest text. Their 'go-to', so to speak.

Particularly could he deal with 'reckoned' or 'credited' language? Did Paul mean something different than the Psalmist did in Psalm 106:30-31 in regards to Phinehas being "credited as righteous"?

Make that all into a question, please.

In what way is the gospel of the Uncircumcision entrusted to Paul different from the gospel of the Circumcision entrusted to Peter? (Gal.2:7-9).

Looking forward to the interview, Chris. Thus, far I have only had the opportunity to glance through VanL's book, but I hope to get to it in the not too distant future.

However, seeing as I tend to follow von Balthasar on the issue of God's mercy, and the "NPP" on issues related to Paul, my only question for VanL would be, "How can somebody so intelligent, miss the point so completely?" (I am, of course, speaking in jest!)

Grace and peace (to all, VanL included, just like the rest of us).

Please ask VanL to elaborate on his critique of Protestant construals of imputation.

Thanks, chaps.
