About the Book

What place does the resurrection of Jesus Christ have in the soteriological teaching of the apostle Paul? The author, writing from within the Reformed tradition, explains in part one that a change has taken place in Reformed theology's interpretation of the emphasis of Paul's thought. Gaffin discusses this change and the proper way to approach Paul. Part two uncovers the basic structure of Paul's resurrection theology and shows that the central theme of Christ's resurrection governs the whole of Paul's theology. Part three discusses the way in which Paul develops and uses this theme. Gaffin's conclusion presents the implications of this study for the problems and program of Reformed dogmatics. - Back cover.
