The latest book in our Library of Pauline Studies series, Paul and the Jews examines the question, "How did Paul's thinking compare with that of the Jews of his time?" By providing a survey of the scholarly views on this question, Andrew Das offers the beginning Pauline student an entrance into the interesting world of Pauline studies and then presents his own conclusions to this pivotal question.Contents1 Paul and the Jews: a new starting point 2 The crisis in Galatia: salvation in Christ and the Mosaic law 3 The situation at Rome: the law-observant and the non-law-observant4 The Messiah and Israel's election in Romans 5 Israel's priority among the nations 6 The curse of the Mosaic law 7 The Mosaic law in the life of the Christian Reflections: Paul, the apostle of hopeReviews"The topic of Andrew Das's new monograph requires that he address a whole series of issues that have proven controversial in recent Pauline scholarship: the two-covenant theory, the identification of the 'weak' and the 'strong' in Romans 14, the place of the law in the lives of Christians, and, of course, the ongoing debate between the 'new perspective' and traditional readings of Paul. All are tackled head-on in an accessible, informed, and balanced way. Das's fresh-and thoughtful-proposals are sure to garner attention, and Paul's impact on Jewish-Christian relations is the subject of stimulating reflections. A book for students and scholars alike."--Stephen Westerholm, Associate Professor in Religious Studies, McMaster University"For the past twenty years, 'the new perspective on Paul,' inaugurated by the work of E. P. Sanders and James D. G. Dunn, has been a dominant perspective in American and British Pauline scholarship. Acknowledging the important advances made by this new perspective, but also arguing for 'a newer perspective' that appropriates the theological as well as the social significance of Paul's gospel, Das has provide us with a careful analysis of how Paul understands the Jewish people and their law in the light of the universal savior, Jesus Christ. Clearly written, cogently argued, Das's newer perspective challenges readers to reassess some basic assumptions of recent scholarship."--Frank J. Matera, Professor of New Testament, The Catholic University of America"This book places itself in the midst of the discussion on the 'New Look' in Pauline studies, and makes an important contribution to that debate. Whether one is disposed to follow that way of seeing Paul's theology or not, this book will surely provoke further reflection. Well written and cogently argued, it will reward a careful reading."--Paul Achtemeier, Union Theological Seminary
