9789004162723: Paul's World (Pauline Studies)

This volume is concerned with Paul's world. The major question to ask is--what is that world of Paul? In determinable ways, Paul's world is everything in the world in which Paul lived and acted, and hence virtually everything that Paul did. In other words, Paul's world can be defined macrocosmically and microcosmically. As the term is defined in the various essays in this volume, Paul's world includes the surrounding environment in which Paul functioned, including its various religious, social, cultural, literary, rhetorical, linguistic and related phenomena. This volume treats some of the most important and germane factors that went into making up the world in which Paul lived, and that consequently defined who he was and became.

Review:

"This collection of twelve studies admirably maps out the intellectual, social and religious worl in which Paul was located....The contents of this volume are both rich and varied...The studies collected here do address significant factors that influenced Paul, and at times offer new insights into Paul's "Sitz im Leben."" Paul Foster, "Expository Times," June 2009 '"Porter s first four volumes have brought scholars from various persuasions, traditions and countries together and given them the opportunity to present their views to an international audience. The quality of their contributions is impressive. Porter is to be thanked for his own contributions and the effort involved in bringing the series together."' Christoph Stenschke, "Religion and Theology" 16, 2009 "All contributions are of high quality and will be of interested to both scholar and student alike." Gary W. Burnett. "Journal for the Study of the New Testament," 31.5 (2009)"
