Bruce Longenecker explores Paul's theology of divine triumph in Galatians.

Paul envisaged God's transforming power against a background of Christian social interaction. He calls his Galatian hearers to a life of transformed existence through the power of the Spirit. Christian moral identity arises out of the faithfulness of Christ - a feature crucial to the theological and corporate enterprise that Paul envisages.

Longenecker conveys the importance of ethics and Christian moral identity in Paul's vision. He explores the 'apocalyptic' dimension of Paul's theology, and explains it in relation to 'Lutheran' and 'new' perspectives on Paul. And he demonstrates how Paul in Galatians may provide an important resource for contemporary theology concerning Christian identity and modern society.
