Divine wrath is considered politically incorrect for a God of love, but Stevens insists coming to terms with Paul's language of wrath is imperative for understanding Paul's gospel. Half of the occurrences of the two primary terms in the New Testament are in Paul. A survey focusing on the key terms for wrath in Greek, Roman, Hebrew, Samaritan, and New Testament literature provides background to see Pauline distinctives. Rich illustrations bring discussion to life drawn from decades of the author's research overseas. Stevens challenges Dodd's divine wrath as no more than an impersonal nexus of sin and retribution by integrating wrath into a theology of grace through which God always and in everything is seeking to save.
