n HTS : Theological Studies - The new perspective on Paul, J.D.G. Dunn : book review

Volume 64, Issue 4
  • ISSN : 0259-9422
  • E-ISSN: 2072-8050



Dunn and his work on the NPP have brought to light the importance of ethnic identity in the New Testament, and the challenge Paul faced in his attempt to make one people out of the many. This book is a testimony to Paul's struggle in this regard, as well as Dunn's identification of that struggle when appreciated in its social and historical context, dimensions that cannot be ignored in the development of Paul's theology. If you are a supporter of the NPP, this book is a convenient collection of Dunn's work on the topic and a necessary addition to your library. If not, it will be a principal dialogue partner.
