It has been my privilege and joy this week to teach the 10-hour course, A Pauline Theology of the Church, for the Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church Christian Education Institute, Washington, DC. The students are asking great questions and providing challenging responses to the presentations.
As promised to the students, I am posting the resources below for further study beyond the the course text:
Thomas Schreiner, Paul: Apostle of God’s Glory in Christ (IVP Academic)
Herman Ridderbos, Paul: An Outline of His Theology (Wm. B. Eerdmans)
Tom Holland, Paul: Contours of a Pauline Theology (Mentor)
I suggest you start with Horton; read with a small group or class. Advance to Schreiner after Horton. Then read Ridderbos and Holland in any order of preference.
Also, as a follow-up to the brief discussion on same-sex marriage, please consider Justin Taylor’s post, “Gay Marriage: Not Just a Social Revolution but a Cosmological One.”
