Are Paul's letters undergirded and informed by key narratives, and does a heightened awareness of those narratives help us to gain a richer and more rounded understanding of Paul's theology? The last two decades of the twentieth century witnessed an increasing interest in the narrative features of Paul's thought. A variety of studies since that period have advanced "story" as an integral and generative ingredient in Paul's theological formulations. In this book, a team of leading Pauline scholars assesses the strengths and weaknesses of a narrative approach, looking in detail at its application to particular Pauline texts.


Perspectives in Religious Studies(Vol. 32, No. 4, Winter 2005)"Far from being a random assortment of discretestudies, the book is strengthened by a carefulorganziation that maximizes critical dialogue among the contributors."--F. Scott Spencer, Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond, Richmond, VA
