Tag: B&H Academic Reviews (page 2 of 3)
A while ago I reviewed Continuity & Discontinuity, which had the unique feature of presenting varying positions on the relationship of the Old and New Testaments in key areas including hermeneutics, the Law, salvation, and the fulfillment of OT promises.
As I sit down to write this review, I can hear the words ringing in my head, “another commentary series?” Or maybe, “another review defending the existence of another commentary series?”. The answers to these questions are yes and yes. However, I admit I too have skepticism of my own when I hear of a new commentary series being launched, but in the case of the new Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation series, and Thomas Schreiner’s flagship Hebrews commentary in particular, I can say that my hesitations were quickly dispelled.
Perhaps Romans 7 is not about believers or unbelievers after all; what if Paul is trying to say something entirely different? In Perspectives of Our Struggle with Sin, Mark Seifrid argues that Paul’s focus is on the human being confronted with the Law.
