Michael F. Bird
-- Ridley College
"Nijay Gupta presents here the best contemporary exploration of the meaning of 'faith' and 'believing' in the Christian Bible. He leaves no stone unturned as he covers topics like faith as doctrine, virtue, allegiance, trust, obedience, and fidelity, among other things. Along the way Gupta cracks open a few hoary chestnuts like the 'faithfulness of Christ' and faith as a social boundary marker, always with clarity and acumen. All in all, a wonderful exposition of the meaning of faith in the biblical world."

Matthew V. Novenson
-- University of Edinburgh
"Nijay Gupta has again proved himself to be one of the best and most interesting young exegetes now working. In this impressive book, he gives us, among other things: an up-to-date, incisive treatment of the pistis christou debate; an argument for 'covenantal pistism' as a gloss for Paul's pattern of religion; and a bridge from the classic interpretations of Luther and Calvin to recent proposals from Benjamin Schliesser, Teresa Morgan, and others. Throughout, Gupta writes with a historical critic's keen eye for textual detail and a theologian's sense of the considerable stakes of these discussions. Paul and the Language of Faith is a reliable guide for students and a valuable resource for scholars."

James D. G. Dunn
-- from the foreword
"A clear discussion of the biblical, particularly Pauline concept of faith, its breadth and its specifics. Reading it with care will strengthen and perhaps correct the reader's understanding of faith. Who could ask for more?"
