This important book reveals an economic dimension of Pauls gospel that has only rarely been identified and never expounded so fully and convincingly. It also builds up a realistic picture of the way that care for the poor was embodied in the life of the communities Paul founded. Longeneckers well-informed and careful arguments deserve wide attention.
