Recent research into the character of Judaism in the first century has given scholars a new perspective on Paul. Nowhere is this new perspective more important than in the case of Paul's letter to the Galatians, a letter that shaped the character of the Christian religion in its early years and that remains a foundation document of Christianity. This study, the first to benefit from the new perspective on Paul, explains more clearly than ever the issues that confronted Paul and the powerful theological arguments he brought to bear in response.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...balanced and judicious research in the best tradition of conservative NT scholarship. Those of a more critical bent can also profit from reading these volumes, as will seminarians and advanced students of the NT for whom the series as a whole is intended." The Catholic Biblical Quarterly

"Dunn's study will furnish both a benchmark and a provocation for future theological studies of Galatians and of each of the Pauline letters individually. Ultimately, perhaps, such a work will provide the necessary basis for a more nuanced interpretation of Pauline theology as a whole." Journal of Biblical Literature

"Commendably, though written in a fresh and uncomplicated way, Dunn avoids sounding pedagogical. Instead, engaging himself as well as the readers, he leads them into the thicket of Paul's theological argumentation. Thus, while not breaking new ground, the volume is helpful also as a good introduction for undergraduate and seminary students. This aim and purpose is underscored by useful and up-to-date bibliographical annotations." Hans Dieter Betz, Journal of Religion
