    Book details


Paul's teachings are vital to understanding the Christian gospel ― his letters, says Richard Longenecker, are second in importance only to the words of Jesus ― so the turbulent, long-running controversy over contrasting interpretations of Paul's message takes on crucial importance. Longenecker's Paul, Apostle of Liberty stands as a significant, constructive evangelical study of Paul's theology, including the creative tension between law and liberty that runs throughout his thought.

When this book was originally published in 1964, Longenecker then presciently anticipated several subsequent debates, addressing many of the same questions that such scholars as E. P. Sanders and Richard Hays did years later. This new edition of Paul, Apostle of Liberty includes a foreword by Douglas Campbell and a lengthy addendum by Longenecker discussing the major developments in Paul studies over the past fifty years.

The republication of Richard Longenecker s "Paul, Apostle of Liberty "is potentially a very important moment for modern Pauline studies. ... This book is, if nothing else, an analysis of truly impressive breadth and sophistication, while it is still more incredible to think of all the debates that it anticipated by decades. ... It is more and more apparent to me on reflection what a tour de force this sustained explanation of Paul s thinking is, and hence my enthusiasm for its republication. It deserves to be much more widely known than it currently is.from Douglas A.
