Format: Paperback
This short book is a good introductory critique on the New Perspective view of Paul (Sanders, Dunn, Stendahl, et al). The book is short and uncomplicated so that the average layperson can understand what the New Perspective teaches and what the criticisms are against it. Stuhlmacher is a German moderate evangelical and generally holds to the traditional Protestant understanding of justification. However, I do have some reservations on some of Stuhlmacher's views. On page 62, he states that the "distinction between 'imputed' righteousness...and 'effective' righteousness...cannot be maintained by Paul. Both belong together for the apostle." Thus, Stuhlmacher is blurring (I assume unintentionally) the line between Trent and traditional Protestantism on justification. Also, he takes the "re-creational" view of justification (p. 73). However, he does maintain that the Final Judgment for Christians "will determine not their salvation or damnation but only their position in the kingdom of God and of his Christ" (p. 69). Thus, he separates himself from those who promote a nomistic "Gospel" that is being preached popularly within "evangelical" circles today. Finally, Donald Hagner's contributory essay (chapter 4) is a must read. Hagner examines the New Perspective and sees whether it has Biblical foundations (which it does not). Overall, a good book critiquing a movement that has influenced a significant section of Christianity today.

Peter Stuhlmacher's criticism against recent N.P.P. (New Pauline Prespectivism) approach to justification. This is a well written book. Although sometimes it uses a very formal language, it is not difficult to read. The argument is well constructed and based on deep research, it is a fair contribution on Pauline writtings analysis.
Even though Stuhlmacher's prespective of Paul is Lutheran, he rejects Lutheran dogmatic view of Paul.
His defence of Luteran' view of Paul is conservative and solid and deals with most of the New Perspectivism core teachings, lifting up a sound discussion on the doctrine of Justification.
I seriously recommend this book for any research on Pauline writings and Theology.

This a really good book. It is a short book. Quick reading. There is also a good audio that goes along with the book. Search Peter Stuhlmacher and New Perspective on Paul and the link should come up.

The essay by Donald A. Hagner is also good.

Format: Paperback
Unless you are a seminary student and this is required reading I would not read this book. You may have to read it 2 or 3 times just to get it. It is translated from German to English so it's hard to follow at times. As an Alabama Baptist it bothers me that our own Beeson Divinity School invited him to speak. He's definately not a conservative evangelical.
