Product Description

In this collection of essays, James Dunn highlights a dimension of Paul's theology of justification he feels has been neglected: that Paul's teaching emerged as an integral part of his understanding of his commission to preach the gospel to non-Jews and that his dismissal of justification "by works of the law" was directed not so much against Jewish legalism but rather against his fellow Jews' assumption that the law remained a dividing wall separating Christian Jews from Christian Gentiles. James Dunn seeks to carry forward the debate on Jewish soteriology, on the relation of justification by faith to judgment "according to works," on Christian fulfillment of the law, and on the crucial role of Christ, his death and resurrection.

Publisher's Description

This collection of essays highlights a dimension of Paul's theology of justification that has been neglected -- that his teaching emerged as an integral part of his understanding of his commission to preach the gospel to non-Jews and that his dismissal of justification "by works of the law" was directed not so much against Jewish legalism but rather against his fellow Jews' assumption that the law remained a dividing wall separating Christian Jews from Christian Gentiles.

James Dunn seeks to carry forward the debate on Jewish soteriology, on the relation of justification by faith to judgment "according to works," on Christian fulfillment of the law, and on the crucial role of Christ, his death and resurrection. Full of detail and intriguing thought, Dunn's collection will enlighten any scholar of the New Testament.

Editorial Reviews

Themelios
"James Dunn is one of the most prominent representatives of British New Testament scholarship. He has contributed to many debates of the last four decades. Dunn will certainly be remembered for his contributions to what has become known and widely accepted as the ’new perspective on Paul,' which he has described, developed, and shaped to this day. . . No serious student of Paul can afford to ignore this new perspective and the various discussions it has engendered."

European Journal of Theology
"This book is a wonderful resource for anyone wishing to become acquainted in particular with the work of James Dunn, and in general with the so-called ’new perspective' on Paul."

Booklist
"James Dunn's contribution to the so-called ’new perspective' on Paul is both well-known and voluminous — literally, as this book demonstrates! . . . A number of these [essays] have had a strong impact on Pauline studies. To have them assembled into a single volume is a useful addition to one's library. For those who have many of these articles in previous publications, it is well worth reading the introduction to gain a new perspective on the new perspective."
