Robert Yarbrough Reviews “The Apostle Paul: Four Views” at TGC

Over at  TGC is a nice review of The Apostle Paul: Four Views by Prof. Robert Yarbrough of Covenant Theological Seminary. Yarbrough says in the end:

This is an important and telling book. In brief compass it characterizes understandings of the Pauline gospel, along with the hermeneutics and historiographies applied to Paul’s writings, across a wide expanse of Western Pauline interpretation today. This review has highlighted the core of each contributor’s conviction. Perhaps most gripping, however, are the fireworks observed in their interactions. As Bird notes, “The exchanges result in some big intellectual artillery being fired in four directions all at once” (16). Indeed. I plan to use this book in my own seminary class covering Acts and Paul, as it will not only inform students but also provide enough sharp argumentation to keep them engaged.
