9780830817788: Dictionary of Paul and His Letters (The IVP Bible Dictionary Series)

1994 ECPA Gold Medallion (Reference Books) The Dictionary of Paul and His Letters is a one-of-a-kind reference work. Following the format of its hightly successful companion volume, the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels, this Dictionary is designed to bring students, teachers, ministers and laypeople abreast of the established conclusions and significant recent developments in Pauline scholarship. No other single reference work presents as much information focused exclusively on Pauline theology, literature, background and scholarship. In a field that recently has undergone significant shifts in perspective, the Dictionary of Paul and His Letters offers a summa of Paul and Pauline studies. In-depth articles focus on individual theological themes (such as law, resurrection and Son of God), broad theological topics (such as Christology, eschatology and the death of Christ), methods of interpretation (such as rhetorical criticism and social-scientific approaches), background topics (such as apocalypticism, Hellenism and Qumran) and various other subjects specifically related to the scholarly study of Pauline theology and literature (such as early catholicism, the center of Paul's theology, and Paul and his interpreters since F. C. Baur). Separate articles are also devoted to each of the Pauline letters to hermeneutics and to preaching Paul today. The Dictionary of Paul and His Letters takes its place alongside the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels in presenting the fruit of evangelical New Testament scholarship at the end of the twentieth century―commited to the authority of Scripture, utilizing the best of critical methods, and maintaining dialogue with contemporary scholarship and challenges facing the church.

About the Author:

Gerald F. Hawthorne (1925-2010) served as a professor of Greek for forty-two years at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois, as well as chairperson of the Institute for Biblical Research, which he founded. An active member of the Evangelical Theological Society and the Society of Biblical Literature, he is the author or coeditor of six books and dozens of articles.

Review:

And if I thought the list of contributors was great in the later DNTB volume, I was blown away by those who wrote for this earlier dictionary. Again, I can't recommend this volume highly enough. (Nick Norelli, Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth, June 16, 2008)

"In the present state of Pauline studies a dictionary of this sort is timely and well-conceived." (Charles F. Moule, University of Cambridge)

"The DPL is a quiet magnificent achievement; a reliable and comprehensive guide which will be invaluable for specialists, teachers, clergy and students." (Graham N. Stanton, University of Cambridge)

"A mine of information for all students of Paul for many years to come." (N. T. Wright, Bishop of Durham)

"The DPL is an informed, up-to-date and helpful introduction to Paul's thought and letters. Bringing together a great deal of significant material on crucial topics in the study of Paul, it serves admirably not only as an important text for theological students . . .but also as a vital resource for active ministers in their faithful proclamation and application of the gospel" (Richard N. Longenecker, Professor Emeritus, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto)

"The editors, contributors and publishers are to be congratulated for this handsome, 'user-friendly' volume which serves up many hearty and healthy Paulinemeals that are suitable for a variety of diets--the inquisitve layperson, the hard-pressed pastor, the industrious student, the overburdened teacher and the seasoned scholar." (Murray J. Harris, Professor Emeritus, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School)

"The DPL provides an authoritative guide to Paul and his world for all who are interested." (James H. Charlesworth, Princeton Theological Seminary)

"In this splendid new reference work the serious student of the Bible will find a comprehensive summary of the best of modern scholarship concerning the life, times and thought of St. Paul . . . . I will be recommending it enthusiastically to my students and consulting it regularly in my personal study." (W. Ward Gasque, President, Pacific Association for Theological Studies)

"The DPL will be a great help for students of theology and men and women in ministry, as well as for academic theologians." (Peter Stuhlmacher, Professor Emeritus, University of Tubingen)
