Paradise Now and Not Yet by Andrew T. Lincoln

Book Description

Dr Lincoln sees three main factors contributing to the Pauline picture of heaven: Paul's Jewish conceptual background and knowledge of Old Testament and other traditions about heaven; the effect on that inherited background of Paul's encounter with the risen Saviour and his later visions and revelations of the heavenly Christ; and his apostolic task in moulding the thought and practice of the converts in the churches for which he felt responsible, countering what lie considered to be distorted views or false options. The author analyses passages in Paul's letters where the concept of heaven plays a significant role, and discusses the relation of the concept to the background of his thought, his views of history, of the cosmos, of the destiny of humanity, and of the nature of Christian existence. As a uniquely full treatment of a neglected aspect of Paul's thought this monograph makes an important and contemporarily relevant contribution to New Testament studies.

Ephesians by Andrew T. Lincoln Ephesians, Hardback (December 2014)

The Word Biblical Commentary delivers the best in biblical scholarship, from the leading scholars of our day who share a commitment to Scripture as divine revelation. This series emphasizes a thorough analysis of textual, linguistic, structural, and theological evidence. The result is judicious and balanced insight into the meanings of the text in

Christology and Scripture by Andrew T. Lincoln Christology and Scripture, Hardback (February 2007)

Includes contributions that focus on three issues - the first of these is the method of theological exegesis, the second is that of the person and work of Christ in relation to Scripture, and the third is that of responsiveness to our context of reading. This text asks questions about how do theologians go about reading Scripture around Christ.

Hebrews by Andrew T. Lincoln Hebrews, Paperback (April 2006)

A study of Hebrews structured around theme and social and religious critique, this study-guide is designed for students and general readers interested in learning more about Hebrews.

Gospel according to St John by Andrew T. Lincoln Gospel according to St John, Hardback (November 2005)

The magnificent series of biblical commentaries known as Black's New Testament Commentaries (BNTC) under the General Editorship of Professor Morna Hooker has had a gap for far too long - it has lacked an up to date commentary on the Fourth Gospel.
