The legacy of Paul looms large in all Christian theology. The New Testament and the Christian world itself would be a very different place apart from the impact of the apostle Paul. The work, Theology of Paul the Apostle, is presented in two parts. Attention is given in each volume to the foreground matrix of the place of Paul within historical Christian interpretation. Part One, Paul's Eschatological Gospel, addresses matters relevant for Paul's appreciation of the gospel of God in the establishment of the eschatological community in Christ. Part Two, Cross and Atonement, addresses the more specific and particular issues within Paul's gospel that have been a "storm center" within theological discussion. The present writer finds Paul to be one who embraces the gospel of God "in Christ," the resurrection being the turning point of the ages that calls for a cruciform imperative of Christian identity and living in an eschatological age of fulfillment. Paul's theology and cross imperative has continuing relevance within the very different matrix of a postmodern world.
