"In constant critical engagement... Holland maps out new ways of understanding Paul and offers new insights into a range of absolutely vital issues from justification to Christology, and new insights into Pauline texts from Romans to Colossians. Challenging, unsettling and infuriating Dr. Holland's tour de force cannot be ignored."
Peter Head, Cambridge University
Tom Holland, lecturer at the Evangelical Theological College of Wales, has produced a welcome and important contribution to the controversial area of Pauline theology. This is a stimulating contribution to the current debate.
Bill James, Principal, London Seminary, London, UK
"Dr. Holland provides a timely emphasis on the corporate and communal structures of Paul's thinking as well as on its roots in the Old Testament ......it provides a fresh and useful treatment of Pauline theology, and many of its arguments offer corrections to widespread misunderstandings of Paul."
Anthony C. Thiselton, Emeritus Professor of Christian Theology in Residence, University of Nottingham, and Research Professor, University of Chester
"It is refreshing to read something radically new in such a popular area as Pauline studies. This book should provide a timely and fruitful alternative to some of the theological emphases that have guided the church for too long."
William S. Campbell, University of Wales, Lampeter
"Holland's book will greatly help us to a better understanding of Paul and will hopefully trigger much fruitful scholarly debate."
Christian Stettler, Cambridge University
