Douglas Campbell gives a clear account of why much current description of Paul's theology, and of his gospel and of his theory of salvation, is so confused. After outlining the difficulties underlying much of the current debate he lays out some basic options that will greatly clarify the debate. He then engages with these options and shows how one offers far more promise than the others, sketching out some of its initial applications. Campbell then shows in more detail how another option — the main alternative, and the main culprit in terms of many of our difficulties — can be circumvented textually, in a responsible fashion. That is, we see how we could remove this option from Paul's text exegetically, and so reach greater clarity. Finally, he concludes with a 'road-map' of where future, more detailed, research into Paul needs to go if the foregoing strategy is to be carried out thoroughly. Campbell believes that by utilising this strategy Paul's gospel will be shown to be both cogent and constructive. This is volume 274 in the Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement series.

"This is a book well worth reading. Campbell's call for greater sensitivity in Pauline interpretation to systematic-theological and practical church concerns is welcome... the book represents a vigorous challenge to the JF model and interacts knowledgeably with a wide range of current Pauline scholarship."- Kent L. Yinger, June 2006/ Vol. 49 no.2 (Journal Of Evangelical Theological Society)
'This study represents an important contribution for analysing possible frameworks that may have shaped Pauline theology.' (Expository Times)
"...Campbell has offered much for discussion here and students of theology would benefits from Campbell's insights in the main chapters. Positively, the author seeks to understand how pail's gospel works within its original and contemporary contexts. Whether one agrees with the author's proposed PPME model or not, he has raised the issue once again of how readers should interpret Pauline texts." —Lee S. Bond, Bulletin for Biblical Research, 18.1 (Lee S. Bond)
