The Hermeneutics of the Apostolic Proclamation: The Center of Paul's Method of Scriptural Interpretation
Bates, Matthew W.

Waco, TX: Baylor University Press, 2012 pp. viii + 400. $69.95


Description: Against the prevailing models for understanding the Apostle Paul's interpretation and use of scripture, Matthew Bates proposes a fresh approach toward developing a Pauline hermeneutic. He combines historical criticism with an intertextual strategy that takes seriously the work of the early church fathers, and in so doing fills a void in current scholarship. Bates applies his method to both oft-referenced and underutilized passages in the writings of Paul and suggests a new model for Pauline hermeneutics that is centered on the apostolic proclamation of Christ.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Literature, Methods, Literary Approaches, Hermeneutics
