Unpaid Annotation
In light of recent debates, Eastman (New Testament Greek, Regent College, Vancouver) examines the Pauline letters to help resolve questions concerning the apostle's views of the role of grace and dependence on God, and their relationship to his views concerning Jewish law. He argues that Paul's stand was more nuanced than simply juxtaposing grace to the law, and rejecting Judaism as graceless. The treatise is developed from a Ph.D dissertation for McMasters University (no date noted.)
