5.0 out of 5 stars Breath-taking in its scope and depth.
This is the classic modern exposition of Paul's thought and theology. Topically arranged, Ridderbos exposes the structure and Paul's system and sheds a calm, thorough light on such matters as Paul's meaning of law/grace, flesh/spirit, present age/age to come. Ridderbos is in line with Geerhardus Vos' biblical theology without being dependent on the great Princeton...

3.0 out of 5 stars The usual problem with some theological writings.
What is it with certain writers. I have read some of Ridderbos commentaries when I had been preparing various sermons and I'd swear that I found them reasonably easy to understand! However, with this book the theological jargon is raised to a whole new level. I'm using this at the moment as I'm doing 'Pauline studies' with that finest of all theological colleges WEST, but...

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect scholarly complement to E. W. Keyon's books., 10 Aug 1998

This review is from: Paul: an Outline of His Theology (Paperback)
I first read this book in 1980 as part of my Bible school curriculum. I bought another copy because my old one was deteriorating from so much use. This is the only book I've found that explains Paul's Revelation from a theological standpoint, but without making it stiff and difficult to understand. A must for any Christian who shares Paul's desire to "comprehend the One by whom he has been apprehended."

This review is from: Paul: an Outline of His Theology (Paperback)
What is it with certain writers. I have read some of Ridderbos commentaries when I had been preparing various sermons and I'd swear that I found them reasonably easy to understand! However, with this book the theological jargon is raised to a whole new level. I'm using this at the moment as I'm doing 'Pauline studies' with that finest of all theological colleges WEST, but that is the only reason. I consider myself reasonably widely read when it comes to theology and I do not believe it has to be this complicated. Yes, I can understand it, but that is partly due to the fact that I'm used to the theological jargon used here, and believe you me I still find it hard work! I have read other writers that I feel just as profound but are able to write in a way that non-theological students could understand. I give this three stars (if I had my way be 2 1/2) not because there is anything particularly wrong with it but because I believe that good theology needn't be almost incomprehensible! I'm sure there is much good in it, but for this poor tried and simple minded Pastor it is proving hard going!
