Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Overall it is a remarkable work: original, provocative, and lucidly argued. The arguments are such that at times the reader rubs his eyes in astonishment . I would predict that even those who are not finally persuaded will, like me, never read Paul in quite the same way again . The debate will go on. But it will not be the same debate now that Gaston's book has appeared. - S.G. Wilson, University of Toronto Quarterly Gaston's work is a scholarly and thought-provoking attempt to arrive at what Paul really said. Gaston is to be commended for his courage in presenting a point of view which he admits "runs against the grain of the entire Christian exegetical tradition." His work cannot be ignored; it forces Pauline scholars to re- examine old hypotheses and test new ones. - A. Edward Milton, Religious Studies and Theology (Paul and the Torah) "is an unqualified success in that it raises in a coherent and self-consistent fashion questions about Paul's view of Judaism itself and of the Torah that is central to Judaism. . . Paul and the Torah is must reading for anyone interested in a coherent Paul. - Peter Richardson, Toronto Journal of Theology. Codice inventario libreria ABE_book_new_0774802847

Riassunto: While the task of exegesis after the Holocaust has been to expose the anti-Judaism inherent in the Christian tradition, the founding of the Jewish state has also helped show the continuation of the covenant between God and Israel. For Lloyd Gaston the living reality of Judaism makes possible a better understanding of Paul's prophetic call as apostle to the Gentiles. In "Paul and the Torah", Gaston argues that the terms of Paul's mission must be taken seriously and that it is totally inappropriate to regard his "conversion" as a transition from one religion to another. Paul's congregations were not made up of christian Jews: they were exclusively Gentile. Thus Paul focused on God's promises to Abraham concerning Gentiles which were fulfilled in the faithfulness of Jesus Christ. The inclusion of Gentiles in the elect people of God through their incorporation into Christ thus does not mean a displacement of Israel. Nowhere does Paul speak of the rejection of Israel as God's chosen people, of the Sinai covenant as no longer in effect for Israel, or of the church as the new and true Israel. He also says nothing against the Jewish understanding of Torah as it applies to Israel when he speaks of "law" in reference to Gentiles. But for those outside the covenant God made with Israel, the law acted in an oppressive and condemning way, and Gentiles needed liberation from it. Paradoxically, Paul finds the gospel of this liberation to be proclaimed already in Torah in the sense of scripture. "Lloyd Gaston is professor of New Testament at the Vancouver School of Theology.
