              The publication of these essays in one volume--essays published separately and in diverse contexts over a period of thirty years--is something of an event. Professor Hooker is one the foremost New Testament scholars currently writing, and Paul is one of her major interests. This ...collection includes some of her best writing on Pauline ideas and their contemporary significance. The essays focus in particular on Paul's understanding of human redemption. The author shows that in contrast to Adam, who was created in the image of God, but who lost God's glory, Christ is the true image of God and the embodiment of his glory. Christ has achieved what the Law could not do (Rom 8:3), and though the Law expressed the purpose of God and reflected his glory, its power was incomplete. Several essays, in exploring this relationship between old and new, center on the significance for Pauline theology of the notion of interchange in Christ, and Professor Hooker puts forward the view that Paul's idea of participation in Christ (conveyed in such phrases as in Christ and with Christ ) is the key to understanding his Christology. Morna D. Hooker is Professor Emerita of Divinity at Robinson College, University of Cambridge, England. She is coeditor of the 'Journal of Theological Studies' and the author of nine books, including 'Pauline Pieces' and 'Commentary on the Gospel according to St. Mark'.

              In the course of time the antagonism between Jew and Christian became so bitter that Christians began to behave like cuckoos, or like tycoons who had taken over the company. So concerned were they with their own position in God's scheme of salvation that they ceased to ask fundam...ental questions about God's purpose for 'Israel according to the flesh.' They forgot that poignant verse in Romans in which Paul declares: 'I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kinsmen by race.' For by the time that the church had become a predominantly Gentile community, it had been cut off, not from Christ, but from Paul's kinsmen. I have been attempting in these lectures to understand the situation of those who wrestled with the problem of relating old and new in the first years of the Christian era: if we wish to understand the origins of our faith, then clearly it is essential to explore the context in which it was first formulated. It may well be that the way in which these men and women related old and new may be of help to Christians today who experience the tension between past tradition and present experience. It may be that a better understanding of what was going on as the Christian community sought to establish its own identity could affect our attitudes to questions concerning Jewish-Christian relationships today. Morna Hooker is Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity in the University of Cambridge.

              Shows how important the beginnings of the four Gospels are. If rightly read they help the reader to make sense of what follows, but because they come from such a different culture it is easy to miss some of the indications they give.

              Looking at the last words of some of our New Testament books, this book considers their purpose and message. Focusing on the Gospels and Acts, the author finds that the ending of each narrative is carefully crafted, in order to pick up some of the themes spelt out earlier in the ...book.
