  • Letters Of Paul

    $45.00

    This is the sixth edition of the classic textbook that has been introducing Paul and his writing to seminary and undergraduate students for over forty years. Roetzel provides a comprehensive look at Paul in light of recent scholarship and theological understandings of Paul. This new edition includes four brand-new sections on the following: the chronology of Paul’s letters; Paul’s concept of “law” in the context of messianic expectation; the religious and political contexts in which Paul’s letters were written; and Jewish understandings of Gentiles and Paul’s mission to include them among the elect of God. This long-established textbook is the ideal choice for any student of Paul.

  • Paul : A Jew On The Margins

    $28.00

    Paul’s messianism put him at the margins of Pharisaism, his preaching placed him in tension with the Synagogue, and his Gospel set him on the outer border of Hellenistic religion. This book explores the tensions and creativity that Paul’s marginality let loose. In six short chapters, Roetzel explains Paul’s complex relationship to first century Judaism and elements of the early church. In so doing, he tackles a great many of the most disputed areas of Pauline theology: How can we speak of Paul as a convert? How far did Paul accept the apocalyptic myth? What are we to make of Paul’s theology of weakness? How far did Paul embrace pluralism? And how could Paul preach that Gentiles shared in God’s election without excluding Jews?

  • Paul : The Man And The Myth

    $29.00

    We are left to reconstruct a portrait of Paul with only scraps of what was once a large and imposing canvas-a small collection of letters and a historical narrative written a generation after his death. This reconstruction focuses on important parts of the image that usually fall in the shadows, parts dealing with Paul’s sexual asceticism, his preoccupation with holiness-holy Spirit, holy community, and holy ethos-the evolution of his theology, and his emergence as a legendary figure. Although I have tried to follow the strict rules of historical investigation, of necessity much guesswork is involved in any exploration of Paul’s life. All of these efforts are attempts to deal with the gaps in the text, understood in the broadest sense to include not just Paul’s written words but also the culture, social world, and political realities surrounding them.
