Arrived in the post today! #shamelessplug
As I say in the intro: Campbell “presents a complete rereading of Paul’s letters that genuinely offers a way beyond problems associated with old and new perspectives. And his resultant picture of Paul’s theology generally, and the Apostle’s soteriology particularly, is beautiful, liberating, consistent, exegetically rigorous, theologically aware, and pastorally compelling. It captures, I think, the best of the old perspective, with its concern to speak energetically about the God who saves, and it takes seriously the concerns of the new perspective on Second Temple Judaism. But in remarkable and jarringly elegant ways, it moves beyond them both”
- This book analyses, from a number of different perspectives, key aspects of Campbell’s ground-breaking and controversial argumentation.
- Key scholars are involved in the project, from the world of systematics, classics and NT scholarship. Includes chapters by: Alan J. Torrance, Scott J. Hafemann, Douglas Campbell, myself, and many others besides.
- Campbell responds to all of the chapters he didn’t write, too, which draws the reader into the on going conversation in a dynamic way.
- Plus, the book presents Campbell’s position “in a nutshell”. If you feel a little lost by what apocalyptic readings are all about, and Campbell’s in particular, certain essays in this volume will cogently summarise the main issues for you.
You know you want it!
