Paul, Works and Judaism

Besides the volume by Kent Yinger, Paul, Judaism, and Judgement According to Deeds (1999), have there been anyother recent volumes that deal with judgment, justification according to deeds? I swear I've seen one somewhere published within the last five years (after Yinger), but for the life of me I just cannot remember.

Anyone else have a better memory than mine?

Perhaps Don Garlington???? Not a 100% sure...

No, that wasn't it. I know of Garlington's work. THanks for trying Sean!

Found it! It is not out yet, that's why I couldn't find the book review. I saw it in the Hendrickson catalogue.

Chris Vanlandingham, Judgment and Justification in Early Judaism and the Apostle Paul (Peabody, MA: Hendrickson, 2006).

Try:
Where Is Boasting: Early Jewish Soteriology and Paul's Response in Romans 1-5
by Simon J Gathercole

A few essay in JVN vol 2 - the Paradoxes of Paul - seem to come close to the subject (esp., Seifrid, Gathercole, and Moo), but I don't believe that is what you are thinking.

Thanks for pointing out Vanlandingham's book!

thought you might be referring to Justification and Variegated Nomism. Volume I. The Complexities of Second Temple Judaism (eds: D.A. Carson, P.T. O’Brien & M.A. Seifrid; WUNT2.140; Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck & Grand Rapids: Baker Academic, 2001)

My brain might be failing me, but A A Das' 2001 book "Paul, the Law and the Covenant" looks at some of these issues.

Speaking of "judgment according to works," do you know of any works that deal with that motif with respect to the Epistle of James?

Roland - there are heaps! You could wait till Scot McKnight's commentary on James comes out which will deal with it well I imagine. Or else I recommend:
- T. Laato TrinJ (1994)
- R. Bauckham, James (NTR)
- D. Moo, Epistle of James (Pillar not TNTC).

Hello Michael,

Thank your for the recommendations. I have read these works and found them to be very helpful. I am currently working on a thesis that focuses on works, the final judgment and the eschaton in James, so, in addition to these items, I am looking for "substantial" monographs on James generally and this issue in particular. Do you know of any other works on James that are "must reads." I suppose this post really steps outside of the general trajectory of this thread ;) BTW, I very much enjoy your blog...I read it every day :)

Roland, I think Paternoster Press has just released a volume on justification, but I can't remember the author. Check hte Paternoster page.

Dear Roland,

Thank you for your thoughts. I look forward to following your interesting blog. Not to put this book up there with the great luminaries on the subject, but you might take a look at " Land of Canaan." This is a free online book. The Link is http://landofcanaan.info/book.php
Let me know what you think.

Thanks,
