New From Zondervan “Studies in the Pauline Epistles: Essays in Honor of Douglas J. Moo”

We just got in our first copies of a festschrift dedicated to Douglas Moo. I had Doug as a professor while I was at Trinity and thoroughly enjoyed him. Studies in the Pauline Epistles contains an impressive array of scholars and the essay articles are extremely appealing. Here’s what I mean:

Exegeting Paul

1) Already Reigning in Life through One Man: Recovery of Adam’s Abandoned Dominion (Romans 5:12-21) by Ardel Caneday

2) The Catalytic Operation of the Law and Moral Transformation in Romans 6-7 by Chris A. Vlachos

3) Of Parents and Children: 1 Corinthians 4:15-16 and Life in the Family of God by Jonathan A. Moo (Yes, this is his son.)

4) A Slogan in 1 Corinthians 6:18b: Pressing the Case by Jay E. Smith

5) Mirror-Reading with Paul and against Paul: Galatians 2:11-14 as a Test Case by D.A. Carson

6) Greek Grammar and the Translation of Philippians 2:12 by Verlyn D. Verbrugge

Paul’s Use of Scripture and the Jesus Tradition

8) Allegory, Typology, or Something Else? Revisiting Galatians 4:21-5:1 by Matthew S. Harmon

Pauline Scholarship and His Contemporary Significance

10) Salvation History (Heilgeschichte) and Paul: Comments on a Disputed but Essential Category by Robert W. Yarbrough

11) The Eschatology of Paul by G.K. Beale

12) What’s Right about the Old Perspective on Paul by James D.G. Dunn

13) What’s Right about the New Perspective on Paul by Stephen Westerholm

14) A New Perspective on Käsemann? Apocalyptic, Covenant, and the Righteousness of God by N.T. Wright

15) Understanding Truth according to Paul by Thomas R. Schreiner

16) Paul’s Message Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow: For Doug Moo, in Gratitude by Mark A. Seifrid

The book also contains a bibliography of Moo’s publications. Very handy. Studies in the Pauline Epistles edited by Matthew S. Harmon and Jay E. Smith is from Zondervan. It is a hardcover with 311 pages and sells for $49.99. Put it on your Christmas list!
