Paul and Scripture: Extending the Conversation
Stanley, Christopher D., editor

Atlanta: Society of Biblical Literature, 2012 pp. x + 357. $44.95

Description: This book, which grew out of the Society of Biblical Literatureís Paul and Scripture Seminar, explores some of the methodological problems that have arisen during the last few decades of scholarly research on the apostle Paulís engagement with his ancestral Scriptures. Essays explore the historical backgrounds of Paulís interpretive practices, the question of Paulís ďfaithfulnessĒ to the context of his biblical references, the presence of Scripture in letters other than the Hauptbriefe, and the role of Scripture in Paulís theology. All of the essays look at old questions through new lenses in an effort to break through scholarly impasses and advance the debate in new directions. The contributors are Matthew W. Bates, Linda L. Belleville, Roy E. Ciampa, Bruce N. Fisk, Stephen E. Fowl, Leonard Greenspoon, E. Elizabeth Johnson, Mitchell M. Kim, Steve Moyise, Jeremy Punt, Christopher D. Stanley, and Jerry L. Sumney.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Literature
