Publisher's Description

Paul, Apostle of Liberty is a clear, concise and forthright statement that provides new insight into Paul's theology and his relevance to Christian life today. The writings of Paul, Dr. Longenecker suggests, are second in importance only to the words of Jesus. The apostle's letters have shaped Christian history and doctrine through twenty centuries, inspiring theologians from Augustine to Barth. Because Paul is so vital to an understanding of the Christian gospel, the controversy over contrasting interpretations of his message takes on a crucial importance. A key to Pauline Christianity is found in the creative tension between law and liberty that runs throughout his thought. Paul, Apostle of Liberty is a thorough study of this major theme, distinguished by its careful and sensitive appraisal of both the beliefs and the life of the apostle. Richard N. Longenecker (PhD, University of Edinburgh; DD, University of Toronto) is Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Wycliffe College, Toronto, Ontario. He is the author of numerous books, including New Testament Social Ethics, The Christology of Early Jewish Christianity, and Biblical Exegesis in the Second-Temple Period, as well as commentaries on Romans and Galatians.
