B 26 The New Perspective on Paul (2015)


The so-called 'New Perspective' suggests that traditional Protestant understandings of Paul, shaped by the Reformation, need revising—in particular the contrast between faith and works.

This clear study outlines the New Perspective, evaluates whether it is a threat or a help, and sets out a fresh understanding of Paul and his theology. It is an essential guide for anyone wanting to get to grips with Paul's teaching in the light of recent study.
