The letters of Paul : conversations in context by Calvin J Roetzel( Book )

29 editions published between 1975 and 2015 in English and Korean and held by 1,575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 : the man and the myth by Calvin J Roetzel( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We are left to construct 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"--The Introduction
The world that shaped the New Testament by Calvin J Roetzel( Book )

14 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in English and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Calvin Roetzel explores the social, political, religious, and intellectual environment of the New Testament writers. Roetzel maps the major features of the first-century landscape so that the student may be able to view the whole, and through the whole gain new perspective on and insight into each part. Now updated with the most current scholarship and with revisions taking into account archeological findings, this is the best available introduction to the subject. Expanded materials include discussion of the social structure of Roman society, political dimensions of Pharisaism, Hellenistic religious expression, the Jewish Diaspora, the influence of the Septuagint on the Gospel writers and Paul, and women in antiquity. Pictures are integrated into the text at relevant points, the end of each chapter contains suggestions for further reading, and there is also a current and comprehensive bibliography of topics and authors

Paul, a Jew on the margins by Calvin J Roetzel( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul's messianism put him at the margins of Pharisaism. His preaching placed him in tension with the Synagogue. His Gospel set him on the outer border of Hellenistic religion. Situated on the edge of every sect and popular philosophy he engaged, Paul's radical marginality was ever letting loose an abundance of tension and creativity." "In Paul - A Jew on the Margins, Calvin 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? An illuminating and essential study for all serious explorations into the life of Paul."--Jacket

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume analyzes the various and overlapping discourses of a oereligious violencea that emerged within Jewish and Christian culture in the Roman world. Toward this end, the nine papers collected here address both the presence of violence within the authoritative scriptural traditions of early Judaism and Christianity and the redeployment of these older traditions to represent, legitimate, and indeed sacralize violence.
