About the Authors
  • This book explores the thought of Paul and Judaism on the subject of divine judgment according to works. How can Paul say we will be saved by grace through faith, and also that we will be judged according to our deeds? Paul seemed to feel no theological tension in saying these two things, and this book explains why. The first in the English language to concentrate solely on "judgment according to deeds" in Paul, it takes account of recent discussions about Paul's theology and his relationship to Judaism.

    • An English-language study devoted exclusively to the topic of 'judgement according to deeds' in Paul and Judaism
    • Based on a rigourous treatment of the relevant Jewish and Pauline texts
    • Proposes a balanced resolution of judgement and justification in Paul

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This study sheds light on a curiously troubling question for modern Christians and students of Paul. Indeed, it is a fine example of recent studies that continue to explore the implications of covenantal nomism for the study of Paul's letters and thought. Yinger's prose is highly readable, and his exegetical work is sensitive and judicious...thos who struggle to relate Paul's message through preaching or teaching will do well to consider carefully this important contribution." Interpretation

    "Yinger offers a particularly helpful and enlightening conspectus of the - one wants to say - maneuvering that scholars have engaged in to support either incoherence of harmony in Paul's theology of salvation. Yinger's book is a masterpiece with its clear-cut, logical organization of materials. In further commendation of Yinger it must be said that his research is finely tuned and that his conclusions carry conviction." The Catholic Biblical Quarterly

    "This book explores the thought of Paul and Judaism on the subject of divine judgment according to works. How can Paul say we will be saved by grace through faith, and also that we will be judged according to our deeds? Paul seemed to feel no theological tension in saying these two things.
