Editorial Reviews

Review

"On the basis of solid research, Goodwin presents a lucid exposition of a neglected topic. He argues that the epithet "the living God" expresses a crucial element in Paul’s kerygma and in his understanding of the Gentile mission. After an analysis of the historical backgrounds—especially in Hellenistic Judaism—Goodwin supports his argument by careful exegesis of the Pauline texts. The result is a significant contribution to the study of the Paul."—William Baird, Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University (William Baird)

"The value of this book for most preachers and teachers will lie in its discussion of "living God" themes in the Bible, Judaism, and Paul…insightful discussion."—Michael J. Gorman, St. Mary's Seminary & University, Interpretation, April 2002 (Michael J. Gorman Interpretation)

From the Publisher

Goodwin carefully examines the tradition of living God epithet in Hebrew, Jewish, and early Christian sources and then demonstrates the ways in which Paul adopted this tradition in his own letters.
