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).

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….
