At the heart of Paul's practical theology is God's call of Israel to be holy as God is holy. But his conviction is that the call to be God's holy people now encompasses all, Jews and Gentiles, who follow Jesus the Messiah. This new community of God is to embody the holiness of God wherever they live just as Israel was to embody it. This is a central theological concern in all of Paul's epistles. His ethics are always theological ethics; his theology is always practical theology.
'Abreast of other scholarly studies, and written in a very accessible style, this engaging book makes a contribution in inverse relation to its modest size.'
Larry Hurtado, Professor of New Testament Language, Literature and Theology, University of Edinburgh
His research had focused on many aspects of New Testament theology such as eschatology and holiness in the Gospels. Amongst his publications are: The Reader Must Understand: Eschatology in Bible and Theology edited with Mark W. Elliott; Holiness in the Gospels (2005); Holiness and Ecclesiology in the New Testament (2007), edited with Andy Johnson; Living as God's Holy People: Pauline Perspectives on Christian Holiness (2010) and Mark (The New Beacon Bible Commentary).
