Top Customer Reviews
`In a debate where the worst of Protestant in-fighting has been revived, and "the spirit of
slavery" has been more influential than "the Spirit of adoption", Michael Bird's treatment is more than welcome. His is a calm, judicious and eirenic voice amid the welter of paranoid accusation and counter-accusation, which ought to be heard widely, and -- more important -- ought to be heeded. Perhaps then the world will be able to say again, "See how these Christians love one another" -- without sneering!.'
James D. G. Dunn, Emeritus Lightfoot Professor of Divinity, University of Durham
`For fair treatment and thoroughness of coverage, including that of literature which
usually flies under most scholars' radar, this book is probably unmatched.'

While this book could be a difficult read for one unfamiliar with Paul's world and the NP, readers of Paul will lament if they pass this monograph over; it must be read if one is to continue to be reasonable in their exploration of the apostle to the gentiles and remain in balance with reformed and revisionist views concerning Paul's thought.
