About this Book

Erudite and authoritative, Paul's Message and Ministry in Covenant Perspective is the fruit of twenty-five years of scholarship about the theology and life of the apostle Paul, now made available for the first time to a wider audience. Confronting the questions raised by the history of Pauline thought since F.C. Baur, Scott J. Hafemann's essays focus on how Paul's self-understanding shaped everything, from his message to the driving force behind his ministry, and his consequent call to suffer for the sake of his churches. Hafemann's work reveals that Paul's views of redemption, of his own redemptive mission, and of the life of the redeemed all derived from a central point: his eschatological conviction that the purpose of the new covenant established by Jesus was to prepare the way for when Christ returns on Judgement Day.

Reviews and Comments

"Over several years, Scott Hafemann has been steadily amassing a portfolio of impressive work on Paul within his larger biblical and covenantal context. This opens up dimensions that are often ignored or downplayed but which are arguably vital to any serious historical and theological reading of the great apostle. The present volume makes this important work freshly available so that it can have the impact it deserves."
N.T. Wright, Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, University of St. Andrews

"It is excellent to have Hafemann's essays collected together here, and updated to include the latest scholarship. This book encapsulates Hafemann's combination of exegetical skill and theological interest, which are all too rare in Pauline studies."
Simon Gathercole, Senior Lecturer in New Testament, University of Cambridge

"... masterful and insightful ... This volume is highly recommended for scholars and graduate students working on Paul or the New Testament… Certain essays will also prove beneficial for certain other audiences as well, particualrly pastoral leaders and undergraduates."
Jacob J. Prahlow, in Heythrop Journal, Vol 57, Issue 4
