"Seyoon Kim offers here a doughty defense of a more traditional reading of Paul, taking on 'the New Perspective.' He lays down a barrage of criticism against James Dunn in particular, contending forcefully that Paul's relativization of Torah sprang immediately from his Damascus road christophany and was not simply a tactical position Paul developed as a consequence of his Gentile mission. This book will be particularly valuable for its critical engagement with current Pauline scholarship and for Kim's proposals about how Paul drew upon biblical and Jewish traditions in his christological views. This is not going to be the last word on Paul and the Torah, but for a vigorous defense of an informed traditionalist case, this book is required reading. "

"Reading Kim's new book is a rewarding and instructive experience."
E. Earle Ellis
"Seyoon Kim gives both a devastating critique of the 'new perspective' school and a very important reaffirmation and development of Pauline christology and of the Reformation understanding of Paul's teaching on justification. This book is an indispensable reference for all Pauline scholars and students."
