Gräbe, P: Power of God in Paul's Letters
Want to Read
The concept of God¿s power is a leading motif in Pauline theology. It functions in key passages of Paul¿s letters and is intrinsically linked to his theology of the cross and its soteriological explication in the message of justification. Because this concept is so closely related to the message of the cross, Paul often speaks of `power¿ in a paradoxical context. Although `power¿ is generally assumed to be an important motif in Pauline theology, the concept has not yet been fully explored. Petrus J. Gräbe investigates the concept of God¿s power in Paul¿s letters. He also gives an overview of God¿s power in the broader New Testament context in order to distinguish more clearly the specific Pauline interpretation of the power of God. "The work is an important contribution to Pauline studies and is a well-researched, thorough, and scholarly study." Jeffrey R. Asher in The Catholic Biblical Quarterly vol. 64. (2002), p. 762
