These Are Two Covenants
Comes to Paperback
Initially written in 2004 as a large essay for a multi-author book that never saw publication, here is a book that was finally published as an ebook in 2010.
At long last, welcome the arrival of These Are Two Covenants: Reconsidering Paul on the Mosaic Law in paperback format.
While the close reading of biblical texts make this book attractive for those who want some meat in their reading diet, at 103 pages, These Are Two Covenants is brief enough to help readers avoid getting bogged down.
Keying on the central texts in Galatians and Romans, Gallant works with the logic and flow of Paul's arguments regarding the Mosaic law. Without taking an uncritical stance toward recent development such as the New Perspective on Paul, nor offering a standard exposition of traditional exegetical approaches to Paul, this book helps unearth the inner logic of a variety of apparent tensions in Paul's reflections on the law.
The result is an intriguing re-presentation of Paul's salvation-historical hermeneutic.
