When It’s Time to Reread a Book

I am aware that may appear like a self-serving post, but I will plow on. Lately I have been considering which books are worthy of re-reading and I thought it may be interesting to see which have a better “replay” value (at least subjectively).

My Top 10 Books of 2013

Here’s my obligatory (but very enjoyable to write) top books of 2013 list. A few things to mention first. These are the top books I read in 2013, not necessarily released in 2013. Also these are purely what I enjoyed the most in 2013, not necessarily the most important, nor the best in any objective sense. Many of these are academic, but not all. With that said, here’s the list.

Review: Paul and the Law by Brian Rosner

Paul and the LawWhat is the Christian to do with the Old Testament law? Often skeptics accuse Christians of inconsistency and hypocricy for not following every command in Scripture and draw from the OT laws such as not trimming the edges of one’s beard (Lev 19:27) or not wearing clothes with mixed fibers (Lev 19:19). There are many other implications of how we treat the Mosaic law: issues such as law and gospel, and theological systems such as dispensationalism and covenant theology. Navigating these questions is not easy, and one could not hope to answer all in one book, but Brian Rosner has attempted to address perhaps the most important consideration, namely, Paul and the law.

The Problem of Paul and the Law

Paul and the LawWith excitement I have started reading Brian Rosner’s Paul and the Law in the New Studies in Biblical Theology (NSBT) series. I’ve been looking forward to this book ever since I heard his lectures on the topic – see related link below the post. The book is even more pertinent now that I am studying Paul’s letters to the Romans, which alongside Galatians contains the majority of Paul’s thoughts regarding the law.

Paul and the Law: Brian Rosner

Paul and the LawComing later this year from the New Studies in Biblical Theology (NSBT) series is Brian Rosner’s Paul and the Law. There is significant debate on how New Testament authors (particularly Paul) understood the place of the law in the life of the Christian, and Rosner’s contribution looks to present a reasonable way forward.
