The Righteous and Merciful Judge

The Day of the Lord in the Life and Theology of Paul

by Matthew D. Aernie and Donald E. Hartley

In The Righteous and Merciful Judge, authors Matthew Aernie and Donald Hartley issue a corrective to scholarship that misconstrues the day of the Lord as only a distant event. Through engagement with scholarship and careful exegesis of relevant texts, they argue that the concept of the day of the Lord was so significant for Paul that every aspect of his theology was in some way affected by it. Aernie and Hartley show us that Paul’s understanding of the day of the Lord relates to all of Paul’s theology precisely because it was shaped by his encounter with Jesus, the Lord himself.
