Remembering Paul: Ancient and Modern Contests over the Image of the Apostle
White, Benjamin L.

New York: Oxford University Press, 2014 pp. xxi + 351. $74.00


Description: Who was Paul of Tarsus? Radical visionary of a new age? Gender-liberating progressive? Great defender of orthodoxy? In Remembering Paul, Benjamin L. White offers a critique of early Christian claims about the "real" Paul in the second century C.E.-a period in which apostolic memory was highly contested-and sets these ancient contests alongside their modern counterpart: attempts to rescue the "historical" Paul from his "canonical" entrapments.

Subjects: Bible, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History
