Overview

"This important study is the fruit of a lifetime of reflection, teaching, and writing on Paul. . . . [This is] the work of a mature master of his trade who has a firm grasp of an issue crucial to an understanding of the Pauline view. . . . A beautifully crafted publication."—Francis J. Moloney, SBD, Australasian Catholic Record

This major contribution to Pauline scholarship by a widely-respected New Testament scholar is the culmination of over forty years of teaching on Paul. Brendan Byrne demonstrates that topics often discussed in Pauline studies and Christian theology go astray when the significance of the last judgment falls from view. Offering a fresh Catholic perspective that engages with centuries of Protestant interpretation, this book recaptures the significance of the motif of the last judgment for the interpretation of Paul.
