Cracking the Foundation of the New Perspective on Paul

Mentor / 2017 / Paperback

Stock No: WW919792


Product Description

The New Pauline Perspective rests on the claim that the Reformed doctrine of justification is wrong as it is based on a faulty understanding of the Judaism about which Paul wrote. This New Perspective posits that a revised understanding of Second Temple Judaism provides the foundation for an entirely new approach, or perspective, on significant aspects of Paul's teaching.

In Cracking the Foundation of the New Perspective on Paul, a volume from the Reformed Exegetical Doctrinal Studies series, Robert Cara demonstrates how this new interpretation of Judaism has a faulty foundation and cannot bear the weight it needs to carry—thus undermining the entirety of the New Pauline Perspective.

About the Series

The Reformed Exegetical Doctrinal Studies (R.E.D.S.) series addresses a spectrum of doctrines and contemporary theological questions. While the emphasis is on refined dogmatic formulation through rigorous exegesis and exploration into each doctrine's historical background, this is done alongside warm, earnest pastoral application—making these studies practically, as well as theologically, relevant.

Publisher's Description

The New Perspective on Paul claims that the Reformed understanding of justification is wrong – that it misunderstands Paul and the Judaism with which he engages. The New Perspective’s revised understanding of Second Temple Judaism provides the foundation to a new perspective. This important book seeks to show that this foundation is fundamentally faulty and cannot bear the weight it needs to carry, thus undermining the entirety of the New Perspective on Paul itself.

Editorial Reviews

With impressive analysis of the historical sources, and careful attention to overlooked texts, Cara shakes the foundation of what seemed to be an unshakable system.


Robert Cara directs our attention to the primary sources, to what the texts themselves say. He writes in an engaging and accessible style, showing that a Reformational reading is faithful to Paul's theology.


Robert J. Cara's Cracking the Foundation of the New Perspective on Paul is a fresh response to one of the most vigorous challenges to the Reformation's doctrine of justification in the last quarter century. Students and scholars alike will benefit from this fair-minded and firm engagement.


Robert Cara is a specialist and adds fresh arguments against the NPP interpretation. And yet, he writes in a way that makes the issues accessible to pastors who need informed responses to this influential trend.
