About-

The congruence of the theology of Paul and Luke is a matter of debate. In particular, according to many scholars, the soteriologies of Paul and Luke are divergent. This volume argues that the usage of καλέω language by both Paul and Luke suggests that it may be a common element in their soteriologies. The author demonstrates that καλέω language is an important concept in the soteriologies of Luke and Paul and that although there are contrasts, there are a number of points of comparison. Crucial to this common understanding is the association of καλέω language with the OT covenants, election, covenant meals, and an expectation of the eschatological banquet. As a result of this prominent and consistent usage by Paul and Luke, the language of καλέω deserves a higher place in the Christian understanding of salvation. This has implications for Christian life and practice.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Ian Hussey has composed a remarkable volume on the theme of ‘call’ in the theologies of Luke and Paul, noting above all the relative parity of their positions, but also stressing the importance of call in a doctrine of salvation. Hussey makes a robust contribution to debates about the congruence, or lack thereof, between Luke and Paul and demonstrates how the theme of a call relates to wider biblical ideas connected to election, covenant, kingdom, hope, transformation, ethics, and community. An important work that fills in a gap in most theologies of salvation.”

—Michael F. Bird, Melbourne, Australia



“In this insightful and engaging study, Ian Hussey shows that καλέω is a significant soteriological concept for both Luke and Paul. By focusing on this overlooked dimension of their respective soteriologies, Hussey not only deepens our understanding of Luke and Paul’s views about salvation but also shows how much they have in common. This study is highly recommended as a window onto wide-ranging and important themes within the theology of the New Testament.”

—Paul Trebilco, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
