This book offers advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and interested laypeople an introduction to a wide range of approaches to Paul that are relevant to, yet go beyond, traditional theological and historical concerns. Beginning with Warren Carter's observations on Paul's primary interactions being with Rome, rather than with the followers of Jesus or first-century Jews, and moving through Steven Friesen's argument for a different picture of Paul as activist and Mark Nano's challenge to prevailing interpretations of 1 Corinthians 9 and Paul's observance of "the law," leading New Testament scholars provide helpful surveys of the field and offer new insights and possibilities for further research. An excellent supplement to standard textbooks, each chapter of this compilation offers suggestions for further reading. The book also includes indices of modern authors, subjects, and ancient sources.
