Romans 4 and the New Perspective on Paul

Faith Embraces the Promise

by Gerhard H. Visscher (Author)
©2009 Monographs XIV, 265 Pages
Series: Studies in Biblical Literature, Volume 122

Summary

As the vigorous debate over the New Perspective on Paul will only be decided by means of careful consideration of the relevant Scripture passages, Romans 4 and the New Perspective on Paul makes a significant contribution to the discussion. Interpretations by scholars promoting the New Perspective approach are reviewed in detail and contrasted with those of scholars who are critical toward this method. A detailed analysis of the context and exegesis of Romans 4 completes the work. By suggesting a more nuanced exegesis of Romans 4, this book is able to offer a careful critique of the New Perspective while still noting the positive aspects of the latter approach.
