Paul's vision has had enormous influence on subsequent Christian thought, and indirectly on Western thought in general. Dying and rising with Christ, Terrance Callan describes the theology of Paul that underlies and comes to expression in his letters. What is most distinctive about this presentation of Paul's theology is the argument that dying and rising with Christ as part of the body of Christ is central to Paul's understanding of Jesus as savior and to his understanding of Christian life. While other presentations of Paul's theology acknowledge the presence of this theme in Paul, none of them sees it as central to his theology. Dying and Rising with Christ also discusses Paul's understanding of God more extensively than other presentations. With this new perspective, this book presents aspects of Paul's visions that are new to contemporary believers and can renew their understanding of Christianity. It discusses Paul's understanding of God more extensively than others an is ideally suited to college or seminary courses on the New Testament, on Paul, and various theological topics. It is highly accessible to the non-specialist and excellent for parish discussion groups. 121931 Terrance Callan
