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.
An admirable exegetical primer.
