Review of Studies in the Pauline Epistles: Essays in Honor of Douglas J. Moo

Over at the The Paul Page, Don Garlington has written a lengthy review of Studies in the Pauline Epistles: Essays in Honor of Douglas J. Moo. While surveying all of the essays, he devotes special attention to the three essays by James D.G. Dunn, Stephen Westerholm, and N.T. Wright because of their relevance to the discussion about the so-called Old and New Perspectives on Paul. The entire review is worth reading, but here is Garlington’s conclusion:

All in all, this volume is more useful than many Festschriften in its accumulation of essays that provide exegesis of biblical texts, interaction with current scholarship, and applications to the church at large. Apart from disagreements that advocates of the new perspective might have with the honoree, this is a book that should be consulted often. No doubt, we will remain in Doug Moo’s debt for some time to come.
