A must-have for any serious Pauline scholar or student, this Festschrift to Douglas J. Moo is unique in several ways. Since Doug has been a key proponent to the Old Perspective on Paul, the reader will be interested in reading the essay by N. T. Wright in which he reflects on the phrase the righteousness of God in Romans 3. And where else can you read an essay by James D. G. Dunn on What s Good about the Old Perspective on Paul and by Stephen Westerholm on What s Right about the New Perspective on Paul ?
Since one of Doug Moo s roles is as chairman of the Committee on Bible Translation (which oversees the NIV translation), several authors offer arguments for modifications to the NIV for the committee to consider. Interestingly, Jonathan A. Moo, Doug s son, who is following in his father s footsteps as a biblical scholar, does a careful analysis of Paul s reflections on himself as the father of those whom he has led to Christ.
These are only some of the rich, solid essays from colleagues and former students that fill this book.
It goes without saying that Doug Moo and I have not always agreed. But his patient attention to the text, especially when it does not seem to agree with our church traditions, is a shining example of what exegesis means. That, I believe, is the ideal in which he and I are bound in ties of fellowship transcending verbal disputes.
N. T. Wright
Doug is a top-notch NT scholar, as apparent from his several excellent published commentaries. I believe that he is one of the best commentary writers of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His excellent and incisive exegetical thinking is always evident.
G. K. Beale
Doug is the essence of a Christian gentleman and scholar. His kindness is demonstrated in how he treats those who disagree with him, for he honors and respects those who differ with him.
