This masterful collection of provocative and pioneering studies
relates the New Testament to social theory, gender issues,
sexuality, and personal integrity. It chronicles the work of a
New Testament scholar who is not only conversant with the academic
guild but actively engaged in the issues of our day and the concerns
of the church. The reader will find a rich variety of
innovative approaches and stimulating topics.
These gentle and erudite essays from the pen of a mature,
respected scholar span two decades, and offer brilliant proof that a
scholar can engage an ancient world on its own terms without disengaging
from the modern scene. Broadly interdisciplinary, ecumenical
in spirit, and forward-looking, this valuable collection should
continue to influence dialogue about Paul in particular and the New
Testament in general for years to come.
Calvin J. Roetzel
These essays demonstrate clearly the courage of a
scholar who is willing to venture our of the ghetto of New Testament
studies in order to speak imaginatively to the issues of our world.
