About-

The resurrection of Jesus is arguably the most significant component of the Christian narrative and is critical for Paul’s presentation of the Gospel. Yet it is routinely marginalized in study of the polemics of Galatians, largely because it is explicitly mentioned only once, and even then, only obliquely. This investigation redraws the boundaries of its impact in the letter, showing the risen Christ to be an indispensable feature of how Paul’s argument unfolds and achieves its ultimate objective—establishing a rationale for the creation of a multiethnic eschatological family of God, which is grounded in Israel’s biblical tradition.

Endorsements & Reviews-

Death and Life is an exciting and groundbreaking interpretation of Paul’s letter to the Galatians that should, in some major ways, rearrange our understanding of the letter. Andy Boakye rightly sees Paul drawing especially on Jeremiah and Ezekiel to articulate salvation in terms of participation and life: resurrection, revivification, restoration, and rectification—all related to the Spirit. This is a book not only for scholars, for it has major implications for Christian theology and spirituality. Take and read!”

—Michael J. Gorman, Raymond E. Brown Professor of Biblical Studies and Theology, St. Mary’s Seminary & University, Baltimore, Maryland



“Readers will find this book a very good contribution to the understanding of Galatians and of ideas about life in Paul’s theology.”

—Peter Oakes, University of Manchester, from the foreword
