The Library of NT Studies: JSNTS on Paul assembles some of the most penetrating investigations into the character and content of Paul’s epistles available. Each book in this collection features exhaustive analyses of Paul from a host of viewpoints, all serving to construct a more perfect reflection of the apostle, his theology, and his world. Surveying a variety of aspects of Pauline Christianity, this collection canvasses topics as diverse as Paul’s political motivations, community-identity construction, the prevalence of non-Pauline interpolations in the Epistles, scalometry’s relevance to Paul’s writings, and many other fascinating issues. Written with the academic in mind, the progressive thought and timely analysis exhibited here will prove profitable to anyone wishing to study this complex apostle more deeply.
