Douglas Moo gives his assessment on John Barclay’s Paul and the Gift in relation to the New Perspective on Paul. (You may recall that I wrote a brief series on Barclay’s book a few months ago). Although I don’t tend to agree with Moo on a number of details related to the Old and New Perspective, I think his interaction with Barclay’s book is constructive.
