“Rather, ‘flesh’ and ‘Spirit’ represent two modes of existence, on the one hand that of the old aeon which is characterized and determined by the flesh, on the other that of the new creation which is of the Spirit of God.” (Page 66)

“Paul’s Christology is a Christology of redemptive facts.” (Page 49)

“For our purpose it is sufficient to ascertain that from the viewpoint of a theological anthropology the concept nous has great significance in Paul, in that nous on the one hand denotes the organ, the possibility, in which man is addressed as a thinking and responsible being by the revelation of God, and on the other hand constitutes as well the description of that by which he is most deeply determined in his thinking and acting.” (Page 119)

“The redemptive indicative of dying and rising with Christ is not to be separated from the imperative of the struggle against sin.” (Page 254)

“way: Paul’s doctrine of justification is a definite interpretation and application of his eschatology” (Page 162)

In many ways this is the most comprehensive and thorough exposition of the teaching of the apostle Paul that I have ever read. It will stimulate thought and study by its originality at points, and even when it provokes some disagreement. The translation is most readable.

—D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

A mine of many treasures. . . Every student of New Testament theology will want to own and study this perceptive, comprehensive outline of Paul’s theology.

Christianity Today

Ridderbos has devoted many years to studying Paul’s writings in depth; he is also familiar with the main lines of Pauline research from F. C. Baur to our own contemporaries. He gives us his own exposition of Paul's thought and at the same time interacts with the interpretations of other scholars. . . A standard work.

—F. F. Bruce
