Some Early Reviews of the 2nd Edition of Apostle of the Crucified Lord

Friday, May 5th, 2017

Some early reviews of the new edition have appeared online, by Nijay Gupta, Philip Long, and William Hemsworth. I am grateful for their appreciative words.

The blurbs for the book are also quite encouraging, though they are not new:

N. T. Wright
—University of St. Andrews
“Michael Gorman enviably combines simplicity of presentation with profound originality. The present work, enhanced in this new edition, is simultaneously an accessible textbook and an exposition of challenging new ideas which all Pauline scholars must take seriously. A book to draw in the beginner and to compel the expert into fresh reflection.”

Douglas A. Campbell
—Duke Divinity School
“Gorman’s learned, sustained, inclusive advocacy of participation as the center of Paul’s gospel is one of the key features of the modern scholarly landscape. This second edition of his balanced yet probing introduction to Paul’s thought is therefore profoundly welcome.”

Michael F. Bird
—Ridley College, Melbourne
“The best introduction to Paul and his letters just got better!”

Frank J. Matera
—Catholic University of America
“I have used Michael Gorman’s introduction to Paul with both undergraduate and graduate students. In my experience it is the best available introduction to Paul and his letters. Theological as well as historical and literary in its approach, it introduces students to what they need to know about Paul and his letters. The appearance of this revised and updated edition is good news for all who love and teach Paul.”

Susan Eastman
—Duke Divinity School
“In this accessible book written for a wide audience, Gorman charts a journey to the transformative heart of Paul’s gospel: the crucified and resurrected Messiah.”
