Overview

Douglas Harink’s Paul Among the Postliberals sheds new light on Paul’s letters and thought by creating links between contemporary scholarship and the writings of theologians such as Stanley Hauerwas and John Howard Yoder. Harink argues that Paul’s central doctrine of justification by faith has been widely misunderstood; he emphasizes instead that the goal of the gospel is to free Christians for faithful action.

Praise for the Print Edition

This book is changing my mind on more themes than any publication since Hans Frei's The Eclipse of Biblical Narrative.

—George Lindbeck, author, The Nature of Doctrine: Religion and Theology in a Postliberal Age

Harink brings several postliberal theologians—mainly Yoder and Hauerwas—into genuine conversation with the church’s original apocalyptic theologian, the Apostle Paul. The attentive reader will come away, then, with an energized hope for the whole of humanity, a hope focused on the corporate, political nature of God's apocalyptic invasion in Christ.

J. Louis Martyn, author, History and Theology in the Fourth Gospely

Doug Harink has knocked a hole in the artificial wall separating the theological disciplines and has established a working coalition between the various ‘new perspectives’ that seek to supplant older reformational models of interpreting Paul, and the work of various theologians who seek to subvert the established theological strategy of accommodating the gospel to the canons and criteria of modernity.

One of the most creative and exciting books that I have read in years.
