Product Description

Understanding Paul and his conversion to Christianity is imperative for a thorough knowledge of the New Testament. In Paul and the New Perspective Seyoon Kim develops his argument that the origin of Paul's gospel lies in two places--his radical conversion at Damascus and his usage of the Jesus tradition in light of Damascus. This new way of looking at Paul further explains how Paul made strong distinctions between the Spirit and the flesh/law, with further implications for his doctrine of justification. A departure from the New Perspective School represented by James D. G. Dunn, Kim's Paul and the New Perspective offers a thorough and extensive argument for the foundation of the gospel that Paul spread in the first century.

Editorial Reviews

L.W. Hurtado
"Seyoon Kim offers here a doughty defense of a more traditional reading of Paul, taking on 'the New Perspective.' He lays down a barrage of criticism against James Dunn in particular, contending forcefully that Paul's relativization of Torah sprang immediately from his Damascus road christophany and was not simply a tactical position Paul developed as a consequence of his Gentile mission. This book will be particularly valuable for its critical engagement with current Pauline scholarship and for Kim's proposals about how Paul drew upon biblical and Jewish traditions in his christological views. This is not going to be the last word on Paul and the Torah, but for a vigorous defense of an informed traditionalist case, this book is required reading. "

Peter Stuhlmacher
"Reading Kim's new book is a rewarding and instructive experience."

E. Earle Ellis
"Seyoon Kim gives both a devastating critique of the 'new perspective' school and a very important reaffirmation and development of Pauline christology and of the Reformation understanding of Paul's teaching on justification. This book is an indispensable reference for all Pauline scholars and students."

    I read the manuscript of Seyoon Kim's new book. It accutely criticizes the New Perspective school, but his points are not new to us. Kim seems to be coming from classical Reformers' view with some adaptations on his own. His greatest emphasis in understanding Paul is on Paul's experience at Damascus road. This is a great book that we have all waited for a long time from the most recognized and distinguished NT scholar from Korea. I hope his first book, the Origin of Paul's Gospel will also be published in a new printing. His earlier book is critical in understanding his newest. I am sure all students of Pauline theology will appreciate Kim.
