All Things to All Cultures: Paul among Jews, Greeks, and Romans edited by Mark Harding and Alanna Nobbs
Mark Harding & Alanna Nobbs, All Things to All Cultures: Paul among Jews, Greeks, and Romans, Eerdmans, 2013.
All Things to All Cultures sets Paul in his first-century context and illuminates his interactions with Jews, Greeks, and Romans as he spread the gospel in the Mediterranean world. In addition to exploring Paul’s context and analyzing his letters, the book has chapters on the chronology of Paul’s life, the text of the Pauline letters, the scholarly contributions to our understanding of Paul over the last 150 years, and the theology of the Pauline corpus.
There is no comparable introduction to Paul that integrates the Jewish, Greek, and Roman influences on him and the letters that make up a substantial portion of the New Testament.
