32 of 35 people found the following review helpful By Edward J. Vasicek on August 9, 2005
Format: Paperback
The two-part series title, "Justification and Variegated Nomism" means the various views (variegated) of the relationship of the Law (nomos) to justification (being declared righteous before God).

Volume I of this series clearly evidenced that there was no one Jewish position regarding the relationship of law keeping to justification during the Second Temple era, thus disproving the assumed uniformity of "Covenantal Nomism."

This volume, "The Paradoxes of Paul" address the issue, "Did Paul really believe that one entered the covenant by grace (accepting Christ as opposed to Jewish birth) but then maintained his status in the covenant by keeping the Law?" The clear answer of this volume is "no." We enter by grace and we are kept in the covenant by grace.

A team of mostly evangelical scholars proves that "the works of the Law" refer not merely to the boundary markers of Judaism (circumcision, etc.), but even to keeping the 10 Commandments. When Paul talks about salvation "apart from the works of the Law," he is saying more than, "apart from becoming a Jew." He is saying that the Law is good, but when one uses it in an attempt to be justified, the Law cannot deliver. We are saved by grace through faith; God justifies the "ungodly," not the law keeper.

The authors, all respected scholars, take us back to the clear teaching of Scripture. If we look at Paul without a pre-existing template, they argue, we find that law keeping has no (positive) bearing on salvation because no one can keep the law. Paul concludes us all "under sin." Although obeying God evidences our forensic justification, it does not accomplish it.

7 of 11 people found the following review helpful By J. Fowler on December 22, 2006
Format: Paperback
After slogging through volume one of this two volume series I realized that I could have read the summary chapter of volume one and gained enough insight to start this gem (instead I slogged, and slogged). This volume, predicated on the first, lands a quick, hard right onto the chins of the New Perspective crowd. It will take some time for the NPP folks to answer all the arguments against doing away with justified righteousness without works and the understanding that Judaism contained some elements of meritorius adherence to the Law. Do read some New Perspective authors, but make sure to include this and Seyoon Kim's volume on the Old Skool views that still have weight.

Format: Paperback
It is refreshing to have such a selection of scholarship addressing different aspects of the new perspective and it si good to have these in one volume, rather than having to obtain several volumes. The breadth of those contributing to the volume add to its interest and its value. This volume will remain as an important reference work for scholars in this field for some time to come

Excellent book! the best collection of articles on New Perspective on Paul in one place. Almost all articles come from the Recformed view, but vary in perspectives. Very useful book for those interested to learn more about NPP.
