Full Product Description

Amid increasing interaction between Eastern and Western theologians, several recent biblical interpreters have characterized Paul s soteriology as "theosis," or deification, harking back to patristic interpretations of Paul. In this book BenC. Blackwell critically evaluates that interpretation as he explores the anthropological dimension of Paul s soteriology. Blackwell first examines two major Greek patristic interpreters of Paul Irenaeus and Cyril of Alexandria to clarify what deification entails and to determine which Pauline texts they used to support their soteriological constructions. The book then focuses on Paul s soteriology expressed in Romans8 and 2Corinthians3-5 (with excursuses on other passages) and explores how believers embody Christ s death and life, his suffering and glory, through the Spirit. Blackwell concludes by comparing the patristic view of deification with Paul s soteriology arising from the biblical texts, noting both substantial overlap and key differences. "
