9780826417077: Paul and the Gentile Women: Reframing Galatians

For hundreds of years, Paul's letter to the Galatians has been a flashpoint of controversy among Christians. Why did Paul write the letter, and what was at issue in the controversy over Torah observance, particularly male circumcision? Has the letter with its classic contrast of faith in Christ and works of the law served to divide Jews from Christians and Christians from one other? Radically reframing the debate, Tatha Wiley's fresh approach decisively shifts the Galatian question to focus on the social consequences of Paul's bitter disagreement with the circumcision preachers and specifically the implications of the dispute for Gentile women in the community. Wiley maintains that Paul's argument of equality in Christ was directed to and for the situation of women, whose newly won status was jeopardized by the preaching of Paul's opponents. By looking at the issue of circumcision from the angle of the Gentile women of Galatia, Wiley cuts to the core concerns of the dispute: gender privilege, religious authority, and the life-changing implications of Christian commitment.

About the Author:

Tatha Wiley teaches at St. Thomas University in St. Paul, Minnesota. She is the author of Thinking Christ and Paul and the Gentile Women.

Review:

“Wiley here shows how a scholar coming to a text with a modern interpretative approach can draw out new and relevant insights. She brings to Galatians the new perspective of contemporary Pauline scholars...interesting and well-researched book.” –Library Journal, 3/15/05

"Although this is ascholarly work, it is readable and could be useful for serious lay students ofthe Bible. Recommended for church libraries that buy heavily in Bible studyaids." — Church and Synagogue LibraryAssociation, Nov/Dec 2005 (Church and Synagogue Libraries)

'A thought-provoking and solidly argued book that offers a very fresh reading of Galatians. In addition, her argument models a fruitful way of excavating what is below the surface of a text that could be applied to other issues in the church and society. This book will be useful reading for preachers, biblical scholars and interested lay people' (Interpretation)

'The tensions between long-celebrated tradition and Paul's gender-neutral principle for membership and salvation are graphically and minutely descriped.' (Methodist Recorder)

'gives...a vividly realistic picture of the religious state of affairs in the Galatian (modern mid-Turkey) congregations.'~ Revd Leslie Houlden, Church Times, 14 July 2006 (Leslie Houlden Church Times)

Summer 2006



'an excellent introduction to the recent discussion of Paul and his theology in view of the so-called 'new perspective' on Paul.'Christoph Stenschke, Themelios, 32/1 (Christoph Stenschke Themelios)

'This intriguing and well-written book looks at Galatians from a new point of view...Wiley makes her case skilfully and succeeds in encouraging the reader to look at Galatians from a fresh perspective.' ~ Gary Burnett, Vol 28.5, 2006 (Gary Burnett Journal for the Study of the New Testament)

This book is an excellent resource for undergraduate, graduate and seminary classes in New Testament and Pauline Studies. Particularly helpful is its feminist reading that makes visible the role of women and gender in the early church. The index and notes offer important guides for the argument. It is a rich synthesis of scholarship at the service of an original thesis." (The BIble and Critical Theory,Vol.3)

ekklesia’s embrace of Jesus as the Messiah. Paul’s egalitarian commitment does not allow male members of the Galatian assembly to return to circumcision. To do so endangers the meaning of full and equal membership of all before god, particularly gender equality.

This book is an excellent resource for undergraduate, graduate and seminary classes in New Testament and Pauline Studies. Particularly helpful is its feminist reading that makes visible the role of women and gender in the early church. The index and notes offer important guides for the argument. It is a rich synthesis of scholarship at the service of an original thesis.” (Sanford Lakoff)
