Joining me today to talk about the debate surrounding what Paul meant when he invokes "works of the law" (Romans 3:20, Galatians 2:16) is Matthew J. Thomas. He is an assistant professor of biblical studies at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley, California [bio]. He is also the author of the book, Paul's "Works of the Law" in the Perspective of Second-Century Reception, which can be purchased here.

In this episode of the Leadership Roundtable, we are joined by Dean Eric Enlow, calling in from South Korea. His topic is a fascinating one: public witness and persecution, with an emphasis on the political theology of Pastor Wang Yi, a house-church pastor currently serving a prison term in China. Eric is the dean and a professor of law at Handong International Law School (HILS). He is an expert on Christian legal theory and teaches courses covering the biblical, systematic and historical relation between Christ and the law.
Pastor Wang Yi's declaration (read by Eric) can be accessed here and Yi's new book can be purchased here.
