:In the field of Pauline studies, much has changed over the last twenty years. Since Ben Witherington III first published his influential book The Paul Quest, monumental works have appeared from scholars such as James D. G. Dunn, N. T. Wright, E. P. Sanders, and John Barclay. The New Perspective is no longer new, and the flurry of publications continues across a range of specialized studies. Those interested in exploring trends and issues related to Paul may find themselves in need of a map. With Voices and Views on Paul, Ben Witherington and Jason Myers have teamed up to provide a reliable guide to the major terrain of Pauline scholarship. They explain and analyze developments over the past two decades, including the New Perspective, the apocalyptic Paul, and Paul within Judaism. After establishing the historical context, starting with the shift in Pauline studies begun by Krister Stendahl, Witherington and Myers interact with the thought of recent major Pauline interpreters. They conclude with an assessment of how these studies have advanced our understanding of Paul and where further work is needed. Through a distinctive combination of survey and evaluation, Voices and Views on Paul offers a helpful service to students, pastors, and anyone seeking to keep up with this dynamic field as scholars continue to wrestle with Paul and his work.
