Foster’s High Praise for Barclay’s Paul and the Gift (Gupta)

In the April 2016 issue of The Expository Times, there is a major review by Paul Foster of John Barclay’s Paul and the Gift. Foster says this at the end of the review:

This absolutely splendid study contains pearls of great insight on every page. It is a beautifully crafted argument, communicated with extraordinary clarity and meticulous care. The intellectual framework is introduced with a light touch and applied in a manner that elucidates the discussion and never encumbers it. This book will be not only much-discussed in Pauline scholarship, it will be much-prized for the genuine advances it offers in understanding Paul’s thought. The gifts it offer to those who study it are presented freely to all, and although its author expects no reciprocal reward it will surely evoke heartfelt thanks from those who read it. (issue 127.7, p. 340; subscription required for access)
