Overview

Interpreting the Pauline Letters explores the components of narrative—setting, characterization, and plot—and develops the foremost theological themes in each of the books traditionally ascribed to Paul. John D. Harvey sets the task of exegesis within the literary context of first-century epistles and details major themes in Paul’s letters. The book goes beyond exegesis to discuss strategies for communicating the central truths of Paul’s first-century messages to a twenty-first-century audience. This practical and user-friendly guide includes a glossary of technical words and samples of moving from exegesis to proclamation.

Key Features

When John Harvey joined the SSM faculty in 1992, it marked the beginning of his formal teaching experience, but not the beginning of his connection with Columbia International University. After working for nine and a half years as an architect in Pennsylvania and North Carolina, he entered CIU’s SSM in 1983 to begin work on a Master of Divinity degree. When he completed his studies in 1986 he remained in Columbia for two years to work at CIU as a Faculty Assistant. He later served as a Teaching Fellow at CIU’s SSM for one year immediately prior to joining the faculty. Dr. Harvey is a member of the Evangelical Theological Society, the Institute for Biblical Research, the Society of Biblical Literature, and the South Carolina Academy of Religion. He has written book reviews for the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society as well as contributing articles to a number of theological dictionaries. Dr. Harvey is ordained as a teaching elder in the Presbyterian Church in America. During 1998-99, he and his wife, Anita, lived in Germany, while he served as Interim Dean of the SSM Branch Campus in Korntal, Germany.
