Without reference to Kim, John L. White has made a similar proposal, but this time it is not Christology that is the issue . White develops this view in three sections of the book. White has made a similar proposal, but this time it is not Christology that is the issue, but rather Paul's view of God. White argues that as a result of his visionary experiences Paul altered his view of God from that of lawgiver and judge to that of creator of spiritual offspring. This primacy of God as creator is what enabled him to view God as extending his grace to non-Jews and creating out of them and Jews a new people. The first looks at metaphors for God and sees creative ones as primary

Abraham believed God and it was reckoned to him as righteousness" (Genesis 15:6). Then Paul infers from this in verse 7, "So you see, it is those of faith who are sons of Abraham.

Paul the Apostle, by Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn. An apostle (Greek: ἀπόστολος, romanized: apóstolos, lit. 'one who is sent away') is a messenger and ambassador.

The Book of Abraham is a work produced between 1835 and 1842 by Joseph Smith based, he said, on Egyptian papyri purchased from a traveling mummy exhibition. According to Smith, the book was "a translation of some ancient records purporting to be the writings of Abraham, while he was in Egypt, called the Book of Abraham, written by his own hand, upon papyrus". Smith said the papyri described Abraham's early life, his travels to Canaan and Egypt, and his vision of the cosmos and its creation.

Most interpreters of Paul emphasize that for Paul, God, as universal lawgiver and judge, effects righteousness through Christ's saving death, that is, along lines entirely compatible with Paul's previously Pharisaic understanding of God. But since for Paul the power of Torah and tradition to save had in essence its legs kicked out from under it, the questions need to be asked, What made it possible for Gentiles to be saved? What effect did Paul's conversion have on his understanding of God? Loyola University Professor John L. White contends that to understand the Christ-event in accordance with Torah and Jewish tradition, Paul—the Apostle to the Gentiles—recognized in Abraham and Sarah (as neither ethnically Jewish nor Torah-bound) the explanation for the new status of Gentiles. Because of Christ, the promised seed of Abraham, the Gentiles receive the blessing of Abraham. For the apostle of God, this revelation came not from others or from human teaching, but from his encounter with the God of Abraham and Sarah.

"In this unique study White proposes that Paul believed in a creator God who started spiritual creation with Abraham and continued with the resurrected Christ. The procreative God can be seen in Paul's use of analogies and rhetoric. Because of the new creation Paul expects a world in which God is the universal Father and in which Christ is Lord of God's universe and head of the family of faith. To demonstrate his thesis White includes extensive discussion of the Greco-Roman ruler cult and its impact on the readers of Paul's letters, as well as Paul himself. White's assertion that Paul's theology stems from a God of creation rather than a redeemer God will undoubtedly stimulate considerable discussion."—Graydon F. Snyder, Professor of New Testament, Emeritus, Chicago Theological Seminary
