Excellent work showing where the New Perspective on Paul has misread aspects of Second Temple Judaism. He is fair to the aspects they have rightly noted but shows where the view has been reductionistic and even ignored evidence to the contrary. His discussion of the relevant texts is extremely helpful. His treatment of Romans 1-5 is much briefer but still helpful as he interacts with secondary sources.
