Professor of New Testament
Professor Campbell's main research interests comprise the life and thought (i.e. theology and its development) of Paul with particular reference to soteriological models rooted in apocalyptic as against justification or salvation-history. However, he is interested in contributions to Pauline analysis from modern literary theory, from modern theology, from epistolary theory, ancient rhetoric, ancient comparative religion, modern linguistics and semantic theory, and from sociology. His book-length publications include The Rhetoric of Righteousness in Romans 3:21-26 (1992); The Quest for Paul's Gospel: A Suggested Strategy (2005); The Deliverance of God: An Apocalyptic Rereading of Justification in Paul (2009); and Framing Paul: An Epistolary Biography (2014). He also edited The Call to Serve: Biblical and Theological Perspectives on Ministry in Honour of Bishop Penny Jamieson (1996), and The Gospel and Gender: A Trinitarian Engagement with Being Male and Female in Christ (2003).
