Title: Paul and the Stoics
Publisher: Westminster / John Knox Press
Book Condition: New
In this first comprehensive analysis of Paul's relationship to Stoic philosophy, Engberg-Pedersen shows how reading the Epistles in the light of the ancient Stoics allows for a more accurate interpretation of those letters. Scholars must move beyond the traditional Judaism/Hellenism divide. Bookseller Inventory # ENGPAULAN
This book seeks to do for the study of Paul and Stoicism what E. P. Sanders did for Paul and Judaism. Instead of making a brick-by-brick analysis, Troels Engberg Pedersen provides the first comprehensive building-to-building comparison of how the two religious/philosophical systems functioned. The book moves through the major letters of Paul (e.g., Philippians, Galatians, and Romans), carefully documenting Paul's indebtedness to Stoic thought.
About the Author: Troels Engberg-Pedersen is Professor of New Testament at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. He is the author of Paul and the Stoics, winner of a 2001 Biblical Archaeology Society Publication Award.
