Do you know about the new Hendrickson book Paul Unbound?
It is edited by Mark Given and involves a range of approaches to Paul that go beyond the normal responses.
These are the participants in this project:
Warren Carter, “Paul and the Roman Empire: Recent Perspectives”
Steven J. Friesen, “Paul and Economics: The Jerusalem Collection as an Alternative to Patronage”
Jerry L. Sumney, “Paul and His Opponents: The Search”
Charles H. Cosgrove, “Paul and Ethnicity: A Selective History of Interpretation”
A. Andrew Das, “Paul and the Law: Pressure Points in the Debate”
Mark D. Nanos, “Paul and Judaism: Why not Paul’s Judaism?”
Mark D. Given, “Paul and Rhetoric: A Sophos in the Kingdom of God”
Here, I am particularly interested in Friesen’s piece as well as Sumney and Krause. As you can see, they have selected the right people for the jobs – it should be an interesting textbook or stimulus for discussion.
