Paul: Narrative or Apocalyptic

J. Christiaan Beker and N.T Wright

(Fortress Press)

Two main schools of thought organize the field of play for Paul – apocalyptic and narrative. Apocalyptic, rooted in Second Temple mystical Judaism, emphasizes the disjunctive. Both the cross and resurrection are read as cosmic commentary on abolishment of all and the advent of the brand new. Narrative, rooted in the Old Testament’s covenant promises, emphasizes continuity. The cross and resurrection are read inside covenant to show fulfillment. Here, in one volume of two acclaimed Pauline scholars – J. Christaan Beker and N. T. Wright – the difference becomes evident. While agreeing the cross and resurrection Jesus stand at the very center of Paul’s theological enterprise, they disagree as to how to interpret the death and resurrection: as apocalyptic or as covenant fulfillment. Let the debate begin.

Christianity and Critical Race Theory

Jeff Liou and Robert Chao Romero

( Baker Academic )

Critical race theory has become a lightning rod in contemporary American politics and evangelical Christianity. This irenic book offers a critical but constructive and sympathetic introduction written from a perspective rooted in Scripture and Christian theology. The authors take us beyond caricatures and misinformation to consider how critical race theory can be an analytical tool to help us understand persistent inequality and injustice–and to see how Christians and churches working for racial justice can engage it in faithful and constructive ways.

The authors explore aspects of critical race theory that resonate with well-trod Christian doctrine but also that challenge or are corrected by Christian theology. They also address the controversial connection that critics see between critical race theory and Marxism. Their aim is to offer objective analysis and critique that go beyond the debates about social identity and the culture wars and aid those who are engaging the issues in Christian life and ministry. The book includes a helpful glossary of key terms.
