Paul Through Mediterranean Eyes

Full Product Description

The result of over thirty years of research and lecturing, Paul Through Mediterranean Eyes is a ground-breaking study of Paulís first epistle to the Corinthians. Bailey examines this canonical letter through the lenses of Paulís Jewish socio-cultural and rhetorical background and the Mediterranean context of the Corinthian recipients.

In a set of connected essays, he draws the readerís attention to the letterís rootedness in the Hebrew prophetic tradition, the intentional theological structure of Paulís epistolary organization and the Near Eastern cultural practices that inflect Paulís rhetorical performance. All of this is brought to bear in teasing out the nature of Paulís response to the critical situations facing the Corinthian community: racial, ethnic and theological divisions, sexual misconduct, intimate interaction with pagan practices and disputes about church practices.

Paul Through Mediterranean Eyes by Kenneth Bailey was published by Spck in September 2011 and is our 14842nd best seller. The ISBN for Paul Through Mediterranean Eyes is 9780281064557.
