I was delighted yesterday to read a good medium-length review of John Barclay’s excellent Paul and the Gift (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2016) by Susan Eastman of Duke University (who is no mean Paul scholar herself). I’m greatly enjoying reading through and discussing this book with our NT research reading group in our Centre for the Social-Scientific Study of the Bible at St Mary’s University, Twickenham (of which, more anon, I think). This is a vital book in Pauline studies which everyone in the field will want to read—and others, too, I reckon. It’s beautifully written, and very thoughtful. As I say, more anon….
