Description

Douglas Harink's "Paul Among the Postliberals "sheds new light on Paul's letters by creating links between contemporary scholarship and the writings of theologians such as Stanley Hauerwas and John Howard Yoder. Harink argues that Paul's central doctrine of justification by faith has been widely misunderstood; he emphasizes instead that the goal of the gospel is to free Christians for faithful action. Reading Paul in dialogue with Yoder and Hauerwas, Harink outlines the political ramifications of Paul's writings, calling the church to embrace, rather than avoid, the political realm. Finally, drawing on the Pauline doctrine of God's election of Israel, "Paul Among the Postliberals" addresses the need for a Christian theology of Israel and Judaism. Pastors, teachers, students, and anyone seeking a more thorough understanding of Paul's letters will take a keen interest in "Paul Among the Postliberals."show more
