9781597520911: Pauline Theology: Ministry and Society

What exactly is ministry in Paul's theology, and how was ministry manifested in his churches? E. Ellis Earle explores these questions in this book, addressing a number of controversial questions head-on: Is sociopolitical action a valid form of Christian ministry? Does 'liberation theology' accord with the apostle Paul's theology or fly in the face of it? What is the meaning and place of tongues in the churches of Paul's day and of today? What is the apostolic teaching on the role of women in ministry and in the home? The essential characteristic of ministry for Paul is its eschatological dimension: Christian ministry is a present manifestation of the coming kingdom of God. The primary purpose of ministry, therefore, is not to serve or change society but to call people from the sphere of Adam to community in Christ and to build them up in their new identity in Christ. Throughout his book Ellis demonstrates a solid understanding of the Pauline church in its first-century milieu. He is particularly helpful, however, in bringing out the implications of Paul's theology for the church today. Originally published in 1989 by Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing.
