About "Paul's Apocalyptic Gospel"
"J. Christiaan Beker faces a major question: can the genuine power of Paul's truly responsible apocalyptic be recovered in our time ? so that we are actually addressed by the gospel of God's coming cosmic triumph ? without falling victim to readily available forms of sheer speculation, paranoid polarization, and romantic futurism? Beker responds to this question with uncommon honesty and insight as he shows that the passion for God's coming triumph can serve ? and in fact does serve ? as the generating source of our compassion for our needy world."?
