Readers of the Bible are often drawn to Jesus's message and ministry, but they are not as positively inclined toward Paul. What should people who love Jesus do with Paul? Here Pauline scholar J. R. Daniel Kirk offers a fresh and timely engagement of the debated relationship between Paul's writings and the portrait of Jesus contained in the Gospels. He integrates the messages of Jesus and Paul both with one another and with the Old Testament, demonstrating the continuity that exists between these two foundational figures. After laying out the narrative contours of the Christian life, Kirk provides fresh perspective on challenging issues facing today's world, from environmental concerns to social justice to homosexuality.
Dr. J. R. Daniel Kirk (Ph.D., Duke University) is assistant professor of New Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena CA. He has had several articles published in journals and periodicals, including the Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology and the Bulletin for Biblical Research, he is the author of Unlocking Romans: Resurrection and the Justification of God.
