The Theology of Paul the Apostle
James D. G. Dunn
From The Publisher:
In this major new work, Dunn brings together more than two decades of vigorous and creative labor interpreting the letters of Paul into an integrated, full-scale study of Paul's thought.
Using Paul's letter to the Romans as the foundation for constructing a fuller exposition of Paul's whole theology, Dunn's thematic treatment clearly describes Paul's teaching on such topics as God, humankind, sin, Christology, salvation, the church, and the Christian life. In the process Dunn engages, in a limited though concise way, with what other important scholars have said regarding each area of inquiry. His work represents a major contribution to the ongoing discussion regarding what Paul's theology is and what its continuing relevance is to the study and practice of religion and theology.
Especially outstanding for its transcendence of denominational boundaries and traditional labels, this book is also laudable for the warmth of its concern for pastoral and spiritual issues, for taking up present-day concerns in relation to Paul's thinking, and for its balanced and practical descriptions of the options within innumerable issues in the modern study of Paul.
"...a great work of academic rigour and great clarity of exposition. Indispensable for Pauline scholars."
