"Gordon Fee is among the most respected New Testament scholars of our time. With this focus on Jesus as Lord he offers the church a practical, compelling, and even eye-opening demonstration of Paul's high Christology. He gives sound treatment of crucial texts and of the relation of the Father, Son, and Spirit in Paul's letters. This book deserves your attention."
--Klyne Snodgrass, North Park Theological Seminary

"Exegetically grounded and theologically synthetic, academic and devotionally reverent, grounded in research but practical and simple to follow, Fee's Jesus the Lord according to Paul the Apostle makes the fruits of his years of careful work on Paul's letters and Christology more widely available. Intertextually rich and theologically provocative, this book invites us to rethink traditional academic constructions of Paul's theology in light of the primary data provided rather conspicuously by Paul's own letters."
--Craig S. Keener, Asbury Theological Seminary

"Fee distills his lifetime of careful exegesis and sensitive theological reflection (not to mention the substance of his Pauline Christology) to provide a wide readership with a clear, concise, and engaging summary of Paul's understanding of Christ. In the process, he demonstrates how paying careful attention to the scriptural backgrounds of Paul's statements about Jesus provides key insights for understanding Paul's Christology. This book would serve perfectly as a textbook for undergraduate or seminary courses on Pauline theology or Christology."
--Roy E. Ciampa, Nida Institute for Biblical Scholarship

"So many of Fee's areas of scholarly and practical passion combine in Jesus the Lord according to Paul the Apostle, including his careful reading of texts, his emphasis on Christian behavior (as opposed to 'works'), his interest in the Spirit, and his bridge work between biblical studies and systematic theology. This is a classic Fee feast."
--Holly Beers, Westmont College

"An accessible, clear, and concise edition of Fee's much larger Pauline Christology. This book represents the rich harvest of long years in Paul by a seasoned scholar who unashamedly shares the Apostle's profound love for and devotion to the Lord Jesus."
--Rikk Watts, Alphacrucis College and Regent College
