New Testament scholars are witnessing many exciting developments in their fields, and Douglas Campbell’s groundbreaking publications are an important contribution to future discussions relating to Paul. Familiar problems relating to justification, “old” and “new” perspectives, and much more are tackled in fresh and exciting ways, setting down new challenges to all those involved in Pauline studies.

Chris Tilling seeks to facilitate academic engagement with Campbell’s work in a unique way.

This allows Campbell space to outline how his thinking has developed, which draws readers into a vitally important conversation. It is academic theology in the making and constitutes the cutting edge of Pauline studies.

Praise for the Print Edition

Campbell’s work is undoubtedly one of the most important ‘game-changing’ contributions to New Testament scholarship in recent times. But as these excellent essays show clearly, its significance extends far beyond the biblical guild, for Campbell is provoking us to rethink some of the most profound and far-reaching issues facing the church today.

Jeremy Begbie, professor, Duke University, North Carolina

Douglas Campbell . . . has generated a conversation that crosses all theological disciplines–exegetical, historical, systematic, ethical/political. That conversation, on full and brilliant display here, is contending for nothing less than the gospel of Jesus Christ. The issues matter profoundly. These essays, by Campbell and by those who would support, correct, and criticize his work, also matter. No arcane Paul scholarship here . . . essential reading for every theologian.

Douglas Harink, professor, The King’s University College, Canada

Douglas Campbell is a force to be reckoned with in Pauline studies. His work can be delightfully illuminating, horribly confusing, and absolutely frustrating–sometimes all in the same paragraph. These insightful essays by some of Campbell’s supporters and critics, as well as by Campbell himself, will help readers better engage Campbell and, I think, also Paul.

Michael J. Gorman, professor, St. Mary’s Seminary & University, Maryland

Douglas Campbell’s groundbreaking interpretation of Paul deserves a wide audience and continuing discussion, and this book is an exemplary model of gracious, critical, and appreciative conversation on matters of crucial importance to all who care about the Apostle Paul’s liberating good news.

Susan Eastman, professor, Duke Divinity School, North Carolina
