The Eagle Has Landed! Introducing Michael Bird
Over the next 8 Mondays, I will be blogging through Michael Bird's book, The Saving Righteousness of God: Studies on Paul, Justification, and the New Perspective. The monograph contains a number of articles addressing hot topics in Pauline studies. Bird teaches New Testament at Highland Theological College in Dingwall, Scotland. I have benefited greatly from his blog, which provides a wealth of helpful info on issues of New Testament interpretation. Dr. Bird is an impressive young scholar, who writes clearly, charitably, and with sparkling wit. Unfortunately, he enjoys the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, but I'm willing to overlook the transgression in order to grow in my understanding of St. Paul. He has graciously agreed to interact with my reviews, so be sure to check for his comments each Monday.
