Paul's Critique of Theocracy

Full Product Description

An interpretation of select texts in Corinthians and Galatians concerned with the establishment of legitimate authority in the Christian community. The author argues that Paul claims no one may boast that they are selected by God, and no one has the authority to rule as God’s representative. He also criticizes those who aim at a special and superior “sacredness” over against other community members. Contrary to most scholarly views, Odell-Scott argues that Paul is not taking sides in a debate about the proper authority structure but criticizing any notion of such a structure, opposing it with his metaphor of the Church as the body of Christ and the “sacred family” of God. The exegesis is also sketched out in a postmodern framework criticizing hierarchy through differentiation.

Paul's Critique of Theocracy by David Odell-Scott was published by Continuum in September 2003. The ISBN for Paul's Critique of Theocracy is 9780826469663.
