In this lucid, well-written, and deeply pastoral book informed by much scholarly work, Coulson argues that God's judgment is a fundamental presupposition of Paul's theology. Coulson shows that our understanding of God's grace and of salvation itself will be impoverished if we do not fully grasp what Paul says about God's judgment. This book will greatly help us to further comprehend the significance of these very important subjects!
--Paul Trebilco, Professor of New Testament Studies, Department of Theology and Religion, University of Otago, New Zealand
This is a book with an urgent message, written out of a burden for the recovery of neglected, foundational biblical truths. It represents a clarion call to readers to grapple with Paul's teaching on God's judgment of evil and human rebellion. Coulson argues cogently that we will not make sense of our present experience or future destiny, nor plumb the depth's of God's grace, apart from facing this multifaceted reality.
--Richard J. Gibson, Principal, Brisbane School of Theology
The book addresses the serious imbalance in much Christian teaching, preaching, and witness on judgment and salvation. Coulson's pauses for thought throughout this book are always helpful challenges. I know of no other work in this area that has produced such an easy read and enormous turnaround for our day and generation.
