Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. The Theology of Paul the Apostle

In this major work, James D. G. Dunn brings together more than two decades of vigorous and creative work on interpreting the letters of Paul into an integrated, full-scale study of Paul's thought.

Using Paul's letter to the Romans as the foundation for constructing a fuller exposition of Paul's whole theology, Dunn's thematic treatment clearly describes Paul's teaching on such topics as God, humankind, sin, christology, salvation, the church, and the Christian life. In the process Dunn engages in a concise way what other important scholars have said regarding each area of inquiry.

The Theology of Paul the Apostle represents a major contribution to the ongoing discussion regarding what Paul's theology is and what its continuing relevance is to the study and practice of religion and theology.

A magnum opus on Paul! Dunn's free, conversational writing (albeit scholarly) is refreshing, and his perspectives are insightful. Particularly unique are the sections on the "eschatological tension" and "the Body of Christ". All Pauline students need to read Dunn's contribution to the world of apostolic theology.
