RBL Reviews

Over at RBL is a review of the American edition of my popular level Paul book Introducing Paul by Tony Costa. On the whole it is a sympathetic review that grasps what I was trying to achieve in that little book and offers critical comments were appropriate. Though I confess that one of the minor criticisms seemed a bit off target, viz., that participation implies synergism, I'm not sure on that one.

See also the review of J.R. Daniel Kirk's book Unlocking Romans which gets a good plug too.

I saw that, too. Participationdoes not mean synergism in a Pelagian or semi-Pelagian sense. And "synergism" has become something of a boogey word, a good term to use if you want to accuse someone without a real argument.
