Paul and the Gift changed the landscape of Pauline studies forever upon its publication in 2015. In it, John Barclay led readers through a recontextualized analysis of grace and interrogated Paul's original meaning in declaring it a "free gift" from God, revealing grace as a multifaceted concept that is socially radical and unconditioned-even if not unconditional.
Paul and the Power of Grace offers all of the most significant contributions from Paul and the Gift in a package several hundred pages lighter and more accessible. Additionally, Barclay adds further analysis of the theme of gift and grace in Paul's other letters and explores contemporary implications for this new view of grace.
John M. G. Barclay (Ph.D., University of Glasgow) is Senior Lecturer in Biblical Studies at the University of Glasgow. He is the author of Obeying the Truth: A Study of Paul's Ethics in Galatians(1988); .Jews in the Mediterranean Diaspora (T & T Clark: 1996); Divine and Human Agency in Paul and his Cultural Context 2006 (Continuum) and Flavius Josephus translation and commentary (Leiden: Brill., 2007)
