My JSPL co-editor, Nijay Gupta, reviews The Apostle Paul: Four Views, noting the perceived strengths and weaknesses of the volume. Nijay has a colorful turn of phrase, naturally I like this statement by him:
Strengths – this is a fun book. I practically read the whole book in one sitting because, thanks to the type of series, the reader gets excited about digging into both main chapters and responses. Mike Bird does a fantastic job taking stock, when the dust has settled, of who said what and how each contributor gave a unique perspective in his conclusion. It is like going to a conference without taking the airfare and hotel hit! I recommend seminary and PhD students interested in Pauline theology pick up this book. It is well worth the time!
