Item Description...
Explaining the myriad developments in Pauline studies in the last two centuries (or even the last few decades) is a daunting task. Zetterholm is a reliable guide to the Tubingen school, Bultmann, law vs. grace controversies, the so-called "new perspective" on Paul, Lutheran viewpoints, and recent multidisciplinary approaches. 268 pages, softcover. Fortress.

Publishers Description
What distinguishes the "new perspective on Paul" - and what lies beyond it? What are scholars saying about Paul and the Roman Empire or about the intersection between feminist and postcolonial interpretation of Paul? Magnus Zetterholm provides a clear and reliable guide to these and other lively issues in the contemporary study of Paul, surveying the history of the principal perspectives on Paul's relation to Judaism and the Jewish law and showing the relationships between answers given to those questions and the assumptions scholars bring to other issues as well. This is an indispensable handbook for the beginning student of the apostle and his thought.

Excellent Overview of Last Thirty Years of Protestant Pauline Scholarship  Apr 2, 2010
APPROACHES TO PAUL is a comprehensive, but concise overview of the last thirty or so years of Protestant scholarship in the study of St. Paul's soteriology.

Being only an amateur in New Testament theological studies, this book finally provided me the "big picture" of the debate between E.P. Sander's New Perspective on Pauline theology and its critics.

Prior to reading this book, I had to piece together, as best as I could, what the terms of that debate were from the works of partisan authors. APPROACHES TO PAUL filled in the gaps and objectively clarified where each of the major contributors to the debate (Sanders, Wright, Dunn, Gathercole, etc.) stood.

APPROACHES TO PAUL also convinced a Catholic like me (I won't hazard to say what other readers will take away from this book) that Protestant Pauline theology - at least among academics - is slowly converging with Orthodox, Catholic, and even Jewish soteriological views.
Excellent Introduction  Aug 31, 2009
This book is a very nice intro to current Paul studies. Professor Zetterholm starts with liberal protestant studies (Bultmann, Kasemann, Bornkamm), moves through the "new perspective"(treating Sanders, Dunn, and Wright), and then into what he refers to as the "radical new perspective" (Gaston, Nanos, and others). He then moves back into contemporary conservative authors (treating Das, Thielmann, and Westermann). He ends with a brief survey of alternate approaches (such as the feminist perspective).

In all the evaluations of each individual author are, in my opinion, very fair. His 3-5 page summaries condense the important features of each author's work and add incisive commentary about the potential biases or limitations of those works.

He does a nice job of demonstrating how the "Lutheran" assumptions have colored Paul studes and how the theological biases of many authors (even liberal ones) have affected their works. He makes a point to introduce the "radical new perspective" as a loose group of approaches which, although different, share a commonality in the fact that they do not take anything for granted.

Though far from exhaustive this very readable 240 page book is a superb introduction - or even refresher course - for those intersted in Paul studies. Though the author claims to be writing from a secular vantage point, and in the end gives a nod to the "radical new perspective", his work is completely fair and objective.

Highly recommended, especially for conservatives (like me) who may not have as much familiarity with the nonchristian authors.
