Publisher's Description

Paul’s teachings are vital to the Christian gospel, so the turbulent, long-running debate over how to interpret Paul’s message is crucially important. Richard Longenecker’s Paul, Apostle of Liberty has long stood — and still stands — as a significant, constructive, evangelical study of Paul’s theology, especially of the creative tension between law and liberty that runs throughout his thought.
 
When this book was originally published in 1964, Longenecker then presciently anticipated several subsequent debates, addressing many of the same questions that such scholars as E. P. Sanders and Richard Hays did years later. This second edition of Paul, Apostle of Liberty includes a substantial foreword by Douglas Campbell and a lengthy addendum by Longenecker discussing the major developments in Paul studies over the past fifty years.

Author Bio

Richard N. Longenecker is professor emeritus of New Testament at Wycliffe College, University of Toronto. His many other books include The Christology of Early Jewish Christianity, Biblical Exegesis in the Apostolic Period, New Testament Social Ethics for Today, Introducing Romans: Critical Issues in Paul’s Most Famous Letter, and the New International Greek Testament Commentary volume on Romans.

Editorial Reviews

"The republication of Richard Longenecker’s Paul, Apostle of Liberty is potentially a very important moment for modern Pauline studies. . . . This book is, if nothing else, an analysis of truly impressive breadth and sophistication, while it is still more incredible to think of all the debates that it anticipated by decades. . . . It is more and more apparent to me on reflection what a tour de force this sustained explanation of Paul’s thinking is, and hence my enthusiasm for its republication. It deserves to be much more widely known than it currently is."
— from Douglas A. Campbell’s foreword
