Thinking Through Paul


Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

Thinking through Paul is a winning combination of richly illustrated, introductory material on Paul and the Pauline corpus (chaps. 1-10) and discussion of Paul's "theological discourse" (chaps. 11-13). Many up-to-date and judicious discussions of debated issues in Pauline studies are included, studded with illuminating primary and secondary source quotations. The authors stress Paul's "apocalyptic narrative" as providing coherence to the letters, as well as reconstruct other metanarratives---about the covenant people Israel and the Roman imperial order---that help contextualize Paul within Jewish and Roman milieux. Students will be well-served by this up-to-date, expert, and user-friendly textbook, which aims not only to inform but also to foster a christocentric ethos. -- Judith Gundry, , Yale Divinity School For students of the apostle Paul, this is a valuable textbook on several accounts. Not only are Longenecker and Still notable Pauline scholars, but they introduce the life and letters of Paul in a clear manner and with fairness when addressing debated issues. Perhaps most importantly---something that sets this introduction apart from many others---the authors help us to appreciate Paul's rich and complex thought and challenge us to wrestle with his theology for ourselves. Longenecker and Still succeed precisely in their aim, to facilitate "thinking through Paul." The job is never done; it has only begun, but this is a wise place to begin. I look forward to introducing this book to my students! -- Nijay K. Gupta, , George Fox Evangelical Seminary Written by leading Pauline scholars, Thinking through Paul is a reliable and accessible guide both to recent scholarship on the apostle and to the content and context of each of his letters. This is a fine (and richly illustrated) textbook whose use need hardly be confined to the classroom! -- Stephen Westerholm, , McMaster University Introducing the apostle Paul is more than a challenge today: not only do historical problems abound but theological debates about the heart of Paul's thinking have become a storm center. Somehow, Longenecker and Still have successfully cleared the ground for students to find Paul. Here is a beautifully produced and efficiently organized introduction to Paul. -- Scot McKnight, , Northern Seminary
