Using the 'new perspective' on Paul to look in a fresh way at the dichotomy bet^sjen faith and works of the law, and finding in the apocalyptic notion of already^not i vat' a key concept, James D. G. Dunn proposes a way of approaching Paul's theological thought that enables him to find not only theological coherence but also ethical integration. Any such attempt is bound to provoke discussion both pro and con, but it is an attempt that all who are interested in Paul's theological thought will have to take Seriously. Truly 'must-reading.'"

B'TfnsIcareful irc&osition of the theology of Paul is a brilliant piece of biblical scholarship.
Pax'in^duefe-spect to the broad international discussion, Dunn opens new insights into fiEsul styiay of interpreting the early Christian message. In demonstrating that the center of
Paul's theology is to be found in his proclamation of the death and resurrection of Christ,
Dunnlaxjnlains how the Apostle at the same time remained always aware of his Jewish her-
■ itage. This book will be welcomed by all theologians for a deeper interpretation of what
Paul has to say in his time as well as today." „ „ „ , „ , . ^ r
