Full Product Description
This book is ideal for upper-undergraduate level studying the Pauline theology as it takes a critical account and debates the controversial theology of Paul. Introducing students to the historical and hermeneutical dynamics that have given rise to the variety of discussions before then rigorously working through them
Timothy explores various notions of Paul, who has been regarded simultaneously as an anti-Semite, a figure who would surely support the state of Israel, a misogynist, a feminist, a conservative, and a radical. The book also debates the controversies Paul has been at the centre of over the last two centuries, especially with E. P. Sanders's ground-breaking work in the late 1970's on Paul's relationship to Judaism.
Timothy begins the book with an account and context of Paul historically in the first century and throughout church history. The book also examines the most significant debates about the theology of Paul, illustrating who the major players in Pauline studies. Timothy also writes his own advocacy of a preferred view in each case as well as a broad survey of advanced discussions. The book is a clear, concise and accessible study book for the perplexed, offering an introduction to Pauline studies, that students and readers will find challenging.
Concentrating specifically on what it is that makes the subject difficult to grasp, these books explain and explore key themes and ideas, guiding the reader towards a thorough understanding of demanding material.
