Paul's Summons to Messianic Life

Full Product Description

Taubes, Badiou, Agamben, Zizek, Reinhard, and Santner have found in the Apostle Paul's emphasis on neighbor-love a positive paradigm for politics. By thoroughly reexamining Pauline eschatology, L. L. Welborn suggests that neighbor-love depends upon an orientation toward the messianic event, which Paul describes as the "now time" and which he imagines as "awakening." Welborn compares the Pauline dialectic of awakening to attempts by Hellenistic philosophers to rouse their contemporaries from moral lethargy and to the Marxist idea of class consciousness, emphasizing the apostle's radical spirit and moral relevance.

Paul's Summons to Messianic Life by L. L. Welborn was published by Columbia University Press in May 2015. The ISBN for Paul's Summons to Messianic Life is 9780231171311.
