The New Perspective on Grace: Paul and the Gospel after Paul and the Gift 

Adams, Bertschmann, et al, Eds.


Over the course of his academic career, John M. G. Barclay has transformed how we think about Paul. Barclay’s contributions to Pauline Studies reached a new height with the publication of his award-winning Paul and the Gift, in which he presents a sophisticated reading of Paul’s theology of grace within the context of gift-giving in the Greco-Roman world. But where does Pauline scholarship go from here?

Featuring a diverse group of internationally renowned scholars, The New Perspective on Grace collects essays inspired by Barclay’s magnum opus. These essays broadly explore the implications of grace and gift across a variety of fields: biblical studies, theology, reception history, and theology in practice. Topics include:

• Paul’s soteriology
• The role of grace in Paul’s life and ministry
• Implications of the New Perspective on Paul
• Divine giving in the Gospels
• Gift-giving and Christian aesthetics
• Interpretations of Pauline grace from the patristic period to the present
• Self-giving and self-care
• Grace and ministry in marginalized communities

The New Perspective on Grace is essential reading for all students and scholars who want to understand the current state of Pauline scholarship.
