No other single reference work presents as much information focused exclusively on Pauline theology, literature, background, and scholarship. In a field that recently has undergone significant shifts in perspective, the Dictionary of Paul and His Letters offers a summa of Paul and Pauline studies. In-depth articles focus on individual theological themes, such as law, resurrection, and Son of God; broad theological topics, such as Christology, eschatology, and the death of Christ; methods of interpretation, such as rhetorical criticism and social-scientific approaches; background topics, such as apocalypticism, Hellenism, and Qumran; and various other subjects specifically related to the scholarly study of Pauline theology and literature, such as early catholicism, the center of Paul’s theology, and Paul and his interpreters since F. C. Baur. Separate articles are also devoted to each of the Pauline letters to hermeneutics and to preaching Paul today.
