Stephen Chester – Reading Paul with the Reformers

Episode: Live from Nashotah House Theological Seminary in Wisconsin! OnScript host Matt Lynch interviews Stephen Chester. We talk about how Luther & Calvin have taken a whipping by some proponents of the New Perspective on Paul, and how they, and we, need to give them a second look. To that end, we discuss his book Reading Paul with the Reformers, winner of Christianity Today’s 2018 Book of the Year in Biblical Studies.

Guest: Stephen Chester is Professor of NT at North Park Theological Seminary in Chicago. Stephen is ordained in the PCS (Presbyterian denomination of the Church of Scotland) and is the author of Reading Paul with the Reformers: Reconciling Old and New Perspectives (Eerdmans, 2017) and Conversion at Corinth: Perspectives on Conversion in Paul’s Theology and the Corinthian Church (Bloomsbury, 2005).
