Show Summary Details


In order to present new views in their various forms this chapter emphasizes the fundamental contributions of Stendahl, Lloyd Gaston, and Stowers. It tries to show that a major shift seems to be taking place in Pauline studies, which is accompanied by an inclination to question everything in the old paradigm. The proponents of the new view have a common characteristic: a sense of dismay at how the old view came to be in the first place and of disbelief at how it could have survived so long. The interpreters of Paul miss the obvious while spending much of their time on matters not in the text at all.
