Cosmology and Self in the Apostle Paul: The Material Spirit
Engberg-Pedersen, Troels

Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2010 pp. xv + 287. $110.00


Description: Cosmology and Self in the Apostle Paul challenges the traditional reading of Paul. Troels Engberg-Pedersen argues that the usual, mainly cognitive and metaphorical, ways of understanding central Pauline concepts, such as 'being in Christ', 'having God's pneuma (spirit), Christ's pneuma, and Christ himself in one', must be supplemented by a literal understanding that directly reflects Paul's cosmology.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Literature
