Jakob Van Bruggen on Paul

Paul: Pioneer for Israel's MessiahPaul: Pioneer for Israel's Messiah by Jakob Van Bruggen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After reading his other two theological books by P&R publishing I thought this one would be as helpful. It actually showed me how nit-picky and arbitrary his opinions can actually be at times, overriding some valuable insights endorsed among other scholars. The greatest disappointment was his chronology of Paul's life and letters, which affects the majority of his insights. Even though there were a handful of interesting insights, it was only a handful -- which was very disappointing for a 400 page book.
