Description

"Philip Ziegler is one of our best new-generation theologians, with a fearless proclamatory voice. His rigorous, imaginative explorations of radical biblical theology are particularly valuable in an era when romanticized spirituality seems to be displacing the church's apostolic confession. This book will be tremendously rewarding as a resource for those seeking to be refreshed in their confidence in the essential integrity of the Word of God."
--Fleming Rutledge, author of The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Jesus Christ

"Working at the creative interface between biblical studies and systematic theology, Ziegler brilliantly develops the apocalyptic turn in Pauline scholarship into a rich theological program. On this profound reading, Paul's gospel speaks directly and boldly to the delusions and fears of a world in crisis."
--John M. G. Barclay, Durham University

"Anyone who believes that Christian doctrine cannot be grounded in an apocalyptic perspective needs to read Militant Grace. With his typical breadth of knowledge, clarity, and insightful observations, Ziegler shows that apocalyptic can inform Christians' thinking about salvation and grace, ethics and discipleship. This book demonstrates that apocalyptic is not a fad but an essential aspect of interpreting the Bible and thinking theologically."
--Nancy J. Duff, Princeton Theological Seminary

"In attending to the apocalyptic dimensions of the gospel message, Ziegler addresses a theme of central contemporary import in both biblical studies and systematic theology. With characteristic acuity and insight, Ziegler draws the reader into the extraordinary vision of Paul's evangelical witness and thence leads the reader to consider what this might mean for the work of the Christian theologian--not only academically but also existentially. Treating a range of substantive doctrinal themes and drawing on an array of significant Protestant theologians, Ziegler in turn exposits, analyzes, reflects, and instructs. The result is the commendation not merely of a new and fruitful way of approaching the New Testament but also of a fresh vision of the dogmatic task and the Christian life. Beautifully written and graciously argued, this book is worthy of the widest attention."
--Paul T. Nimmo, University of Aberdeen

"Ziegler's long-standing interest in Pauline apocalyptic here engages the Reformed theological tradition to produce theology in 'an apocalyptic key.' Characterized by deep and generous engagement with exegetes and theologians alike and replete with stunningly fresh insights, Militant Grace will more than repay the careful reading it deserves."
--Beverly Roberts Gaventa, Baylor University
