Through epochal books of John, Romans, and Hebrews, Ernst
Käsemann exerted a remarkable influence on the theological understanding of the New
Testament. This welcome republication of important studies of Paul reminds us of
Käsemann was an unsurpassed master of the essay form as well. In these pieces, his
thrological penetration of Paul's thought enables him to wxpose the pertinence of the
Apostle's thougt and to assess as well the consequences of alternative construals of Paul,
including Bultmann's and Stendahl's for example. these studies reward the thoughtful
reading that they may require, for they exemplify what perceptive interpretation of Paul
entails. The work of every serious student of Paul's theologycan be challenged and
enriched by these perceptive essays.

This book of essays by the Tübingen scholar deserves
reprinting, first, because its author is one of the ablest New Testament interpreters of
this century, and second, because of its commitment to the inseparability of the
descriptive and constructive tasks. Finally, the author, with his characteristically
aggressive, "gloves off" approach, deserves a hearing with a new generation of
readers weary of blandness.
