Book of the Month
I got a pleasant surprise this morning when I visited the library and not only discovered that the latest version of the Expository Times was out (with the sweet and addictive scent of its pages), but also that my book, The Saving Righteousness of God was the "Book of the Month". The details are: Paul Foster, "Book of the Month: The Saving Righteousness of God," ExpT 119.4 (2008), pp. 181-82. Dr. Foster gives a fairly positive, but not uncritical, overview of the book and he correctly grasps the overarching concern of the volume as being to stake out some mediating ground in what is at times a very vocal debate in Pauline studies. He also suggets that the book would be useful for a joint seminar between systematicians and biblical scholars about the topic of soteriology.
