In this study, Aaron O'Kelley argues that the 'new perspective' on Paul rests on a faulty hermeneutical presupposition, namely, that covenantal nomism could not have served as a foil for Paul in the development of a doctrine of justification that resembles that of the Reformation.
"Carefully researched and argued, Aaron O'Kelley's monograph offers a refreshing engagement of New Testament scholarship from the perspective of historical and systematic theology."
