Paul, Kant, and the hebrew prophets

Grace & Law: St. Paul, Kant, and the Hebrew Prophets was published posthumously in 1989 (Eerdmans and Handsel Press). The printed text includes a preface and acknowledgements written by the editor, Ronald Weitzman, and is dedicated to Cassirer’s widow, Olive.

The work has four core chapters; a short opening snippet from these is provided below as a complement to Cassirer’s “Introductory Remarks”, which are given in full following similar snippets from Weitzman's prefatory materials. A four-page appendix in the published version appeared as an extended footnote in Cassirer’s own text, as well as a three-page index of biblical sources.

The digital text was produced through a combination of scanning, optical character recognition, and manual encoding as part of the H.W. Cassirer project at the University of Sheffield. Thanks are due to Eerdmans for relinquishing their rights to further publication of this work.
