Paul, Apostle of God's Glory in Christ

Paul, Apostle of God's Glory in Christ

Thomas R Schreiner

$24.99

Paperback

Tom Schreiner gives us a thorough, insightful exposition and assessment of Paul's theology that is well geared to the needs of seminary students and working pastors. While thoroughly informed by the issues of contemporary Pauline studies, he offers an account of Paul's theology that is relatively unburdened by scholarly trappings but deals directly with the matter at hand. "The goal of writing a Pauline theology" he writes, "is to unearth Paul's worldview and to present it to contemporaries. Our task is not merely to reproduce Paul's thinking on various topics but to rightly estimate what is most important in his thinking and to set forth the inner connections between the various themes."

Like most writers of Pauline theology, Schreiner discerns something at the heart and soul of Paul's theology, a so-called centre. The theme is captured in the title of the book, Paul, Apostle of God's Glory in Christ. As Schreiner puts it, "The passion of Paul's life, the centre and foundation and capstone of his vision, and the animating motive of his mission with the supremacy of God in and through the Lord Jesus Christ." Schreiner has stitched this theme into the fabric of his book, and the result is a Pauline theology that is not only informative but spiritually uplifting as well. Here is a Pauline theology eminently suited to the needs of theological students and preachers.

"Schreiner (has written a) superb theology of Paul, 'Paul: Apostle of God's Glory in Christ'. This volume is a substantial conservative alternative to the major book by J.D.G. Dunn and deserves to be considered alongside it. It will be very useful to students and ministers."

Reliable Reference
4 stars By Bill, Nov 09 2013
A well organised, dense, scripturally saturated, 500 page study of the theology of Paul in his 13 epistles. Organised by topic, not by letter. He attempts to make 'magnifying God's glory in Christ' a unifying theme to hold the book together, but its not really a book to read cover to cover. A reliable reference for a conservative reformed perspective on Pauline theology. The focus purely on Paul's teaching on a given topic is helpful in bringing clarity and keeping context on view, especially on controversial topics.
