Prof Barclay is Lightfoot Professor of Divinity in the Department of Theology and Religion of Durham University. He is a specialist on Pauline studies, in particular Galatians, the social history of early Christianity (Jews in the Mediterranean Diaspora), the Pauline churches, and Josephus. Recently he has been working on Pauline theology from the perspective of Paul’s theology of grace. His new book, Paul and the Gift (Eerdmans, July 2015) will explore the theological and social significance of the incongruity of grace in the formation of innovative communities, going beyond Sanders and the new perspective, without returning to traditional Protestant understandings of grace.

This day will be a real treat, bringing us up-to-date with Pauline research and theology for the church today.
