There is no doubt that this substantial study will be a reference point for some time to come. His exegetical work is fresh, engaging, and independent. He is not afraid to challenge some current academic christolog results,’ and whether one finally agrees with him or not, his arguments need to be seriously considered.
The book is fundamentally important not only for both Pauline and NT theology but also for countless specific exegetical analyses. MooWheaton College Graduate School “To say that this work is monumental is to understate the case.

Godron Fee once again fills in a gap in Pauline studies with a massive tome of Pauline Christology. Readers who anticipate a work tee parallels his work on the Efe in Paul might be a bit disappointed. The vast amount of data on Christ in Paul’s letters makes such a survey much more challenging and impossible to analyze every single passage in as much depth as one would hope.
My greatest disappointment is the short length of discussion on Ephesians. But this is somewhat understandable since he had already discussed Colossians at length and the similarities between the two letter great though perhaps he could have discussed more, being that God’s Empowering Presence is about pages longer. This work is just over pages.
Nevertheless, the book is a goldmine of information and deserves to be on every pastor’s and NT scholar’s shelf. Virtually every passage one could imagine gets at least a paragraph or two.
He groups similar themes in individual books into sections if they are short. And his appendices at the end of each chapter are extremely helpful for those cbristology know NT Greek. While the book will likely be read by people christoloogy a sort of piece-meal fashion, I advise reading the introduction before examining certain passages you might be interested in.
It will chrixtology give a feel for the work as a whole because in the introduction, he explains his method of going through Paul’s letters and understanding a scholar’s methodology is extremely important is one desires to understand christolgy work. Buy it, read it, use it. You won’t regret it. If you are looking for a detailed, deep review of Paul’s Christology then this book is for you.
It is not a light read but it is also not so technical and erudite that the average reader would find it too difficult. Fee has presented the material in an systematic and academic fashion. I suspect that this book will become the textbook for many college classes on the subject.
This book and the new book by Bowman and Komoszewski “Putting Jesus In His Place” should gkrdon the critic’s claims that Jesus wasn’t thought of as divine until the 3rd or 4th centuries. Christo,ogy expects that this book will be most useful as a christoligy text and he is likely correct. This is not some page large print book with a lot of fill material that you can read in a few days. It is a thorough discussion chronologically of every Christological verse Paul wrote.
I am only an interested layperson but I could easily follow Dr. One of the more interesting concepts perhaps very familiar to Bible scholars that Fee uses is that of pauilne. Very useful christplogy reflection and devotional reading. Buy it, its is excellent.
Fee has done it again. His scholarship is breathtaking: I chirstology impressed by his work on Colossians, an area of my own research. For lay persons who are interested in this type of work, Dr.
Fee has included English translations of the Greek and Hebrew which will make it more accessible to the non-specialist I was sceptical about his claim about there being no major work dealing with this topic; upon further research, I am convinced.
His discussion of the echoes pzuline the LXX in Paul is masterful and comprehensive. Anyone doing work in this area will have to work with and respond to Dr. This is one of the works that every pastor as well as scholar should have on their shelves. This book is full of so much great theology. If one’s eye drifts across the shelves of my study, and if all the loaned books have been returned, you would probably find more volumes by Gordon Fee than any other.
I am happy to add his Pauline Cristology to my collection. I am currently designing a new course on the Apostle Paul chrisstology this work is invaluable to my study of Pauline Themes. Fee has written a long, meaty book on Paul and Christology.
It seems strange to realize it now, but about years ago scholars such as Bousset, and others in the “history of religions” school, thought that early Christianity was hugely influenced by hellenistic ideas. Even byDunn argued that Paul was the “‘halfway house’ between an early low Christology and the full-blown high Christology of John and Hebrews” p Fee’s very thorough and very well researched book provides a solid refutation of such arguments.
In fact, from the very beginning, as Fee shows, Paul held a ‘high’ view of Christology. That evidence would be 1 Thessalonians. This is the first epistle, and is dated to about 50 AD–a mere twenty years after the death of Christ.
Already, Paul “breathes the perspective of Jewish monotheism Paul regards Jesus as both son of God and coequal with God. It’s difficult to imagine a way to refute these arguments, given the careful textual detail Fee provides. In fact, this would be a terrific book to give to anyone questioning whether early Christianity is somehow different from the ideas held by Christians today. Fee also has some very interesting chapters on Jesus being regarded christoology the Jewish Messiah from the beginning and fre the development of the idea of the Trinity, which Fee argues he finds good evidence for in Paul’s writings.
Fee makes use of the writings of both authors. Anyone also interested in this period will want to pick up their books as well. See all 14 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows cee to run promotional giveaways in order to create chritology, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
