Recent scholarship has postulated "hidden criticism" in the letters of the apostle. But how can we decide, in a methodologically sound way, whether such a counter-imperial message lies beneath the surface of the text? Christoph Heilig suggests several analytical steps for examining this paradigm and concludes that the hypothesis that we can identify critical "echoes" of the Roman Empire in Paul’s letters needs to be modified if it is to be maintained. He encourages a reevaluation of Pauline passages in light of Paul’s engagement with ideas from his Roman environment.

Kent Dobson climbed Mount Sinai in search of the God who had eluded him.

Instead he got bitten by a camel.

The senior pastor of one of the most prominent churches in America, Dobson was growing disillusioned with his faith.

One Sunday, he preached, "I don’t know what the word God means anymore." He left the church, but his quest for God became more intense than ever.

On the foundation of Jesus and the Bible, Dobson reconstructs a faith that is life-giving and true—true to himself and true to God.
