While this is an academic book—all the authors but one hold academic posts—pastors and well-read laypersons can profit from it in three ways: 1. This book reminds us that deep divides mark current Pauline interpretation; 2. This book, carefully studied, contains revolutionary pastoral reminders; and 3. This book is a fresh invitation to (re)join Jesus’s school of discipleship for our salvation, the church, and mission to all places.

Did the Protestant Reformers understand Paul correctly? Has the church today been unduly influenced by Reformation-era misreadings of the Pauline epistles? These questions―especially as they pertain to Martin Luther's interpretation of the Pauline doctrine of justification―have been at the forefront of much discussion within biblical studies and theology in light of the New Perspective on Paul. But that leads to another question: Have we understood the Reformers correctly? With that in mind, these essays seek to enable a more careful reading of the Reformers' exegesis of Pauline texts. Each chapter pairs a Reformer with a Pauline letter and then brings together a historical theologian and a biblical scholar to examine these Reformation-era readings of Paul. In doing so, this volume seeks a better understanding of the Reformers and the true meaning of the biblical text.
