Jesus Paul And The People Of God$35.00Add to cart
At the 2010 Wheaton Theology Conference, leading New Testament scholar N. T. Wright and nine other prominent biblical scholars and theologians gathered to consider Wright’s prolific body of work. Compiled from their presentations, this volume includes Tom Wright’s two main addresses, one on the state of scholarship regarding Jesus and the other on the state of scholarship regarding the apostle Paul. The other nine essays critically interact with these two major themes of Wright’s works.
Much appreciation is shown, overviews are given, perspective is provided and some pointed questions are also raised. Together these essays represent the best of critical yet charitable dialogue among serious and rigorous scholars on theological themes vital to Christian faith that will propel New Testament scholarship for the next decade to come.
With essays by Jeremy Begbie, Marcus Bockmuehl, Richard B. Hays, Edith M. Humphreys, Sylvia Keesmat and Brian Walsh, Nicholas Perrin, Marianne Meye Thompson, Kevin J. Vanhoozer
Faith Of Jesus Christ A Print On Demand Title$32.99Add to cart
Widely praised as a major contribution to Pauline studies, Richard B. Hays’s Faith of Jesus Christ now features, in this expanded second edition, a foreword by Luke Timothy Johnson, a new introduction by Hays, and a substantial dialogue with James D. G. Dunn.
In this important study Hays argues against the mainstream that any attempt to account for the nature and method of Paul’s theological language must first reckon with the centrality of narrative elements in his thought. Through an in-depth investigation of Galatians 3:1_4:11, Hays shows that the framework of Paul’s thought is neither a system of doctrines nor his personal religious experience but the “sacred story” of Jesus Christ. Above all, Paul’s thought is guided by his concern to draw out the implications of the gospel story, particularly how the “faith of Jesus Christ” reflects the mission of the church.
