Richard Bell examines the impact of Paul’s life changing experience before Damascus on his theological understanding of Israel. The book considers the development of Paul’s view concerning the election and salvation of Israel, paying special attention to 1 Thessalonians, Galatians and Romans. The author examines Paul’s critique of Israel’s religion in the light of traditional protestant approaches and the ‘new perspective.’ The work concludes by considering some contemporary issues relating to Israel in the light of Paul’s theology.
