Jesus Have I Loved, but Paul? : A Narrative Approach to the Problem of Pauline Christianity
"If a book about Jesus and Paul could ever be a page-turner, this is that book. If we listen to Kirk's wise counsel, we will become more faithful communities of the cross-shaped, life-giving gospel."--Michael J. Gorman, The Ecumenical Institute of Theology, St. Mary's Seminary & University
Students of the Bible are often drawn to Jesus's message and ministry, but they are not always as positively inclined toward Paul. In this volume, Pauline scholar J. R. Daniel Kirk offers a fresh and timely engagement of the debated relationship between Paul's writings and the portrait of Jesus contained in the Gospels. He integrates the messages of Jesus and Paul both with one another and with the Old Testament, demonstrating the continuity that exists between these two foundational figures. After laying out the narrative contours of the Christian life, Kirk provides fresh perspective on challenging issues facing the contemporary world, from environmental concerns to social justice to homosexuality. College and seminary students in New Testament and Pauline studies courses, pastors, and church leaders will value this work.
