Wisdom and Spiritual Transcendence at Corinth: Studies in First Corinthians
Horsley, Richard A.

Eugene, Ore.: Cascade, 2008 pp. xiv + 168. $21.00


Description: Examining each of the major sections of 1 Corinthians, Horsley probes the disagreement Paul had with those claiming special spiritual status. The conflicts over what constitute wisdom, knowledge, and spirituality cut to the core of what Paul was trying to accomplish in his communities. Horsley moves the debate from the history of religions background to the Hellenistic Jewish religiosity of the Wisdom of Solomon and Philo of Alexandria.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, 1 Corinthians, Literature
