  • Paul on Identity: Theology as Politics

    Paul on Identity: Theology as Politics

    Troels Engberg-Pedersen (Author)

    One of the most important and controversial questions in biblical studies is how Paul's view of the fundamental Christ identity relates to other possible identities in the Greco-Roman world--like being a Jew or a non-Jew, a man or a woman, a master or a slave. Paul on Identity explores these issues and, in particular, how Paul's view informs his writing. Engberg-Pedersen keeps an eye on what we may or may not accept from Paul and concludes by showing Paul's direct relevance to identity politics.

  • Word of Life: Introducing Lutheran Hermeneutics

    Word of Life: Introducing Lutheran Hermeneutics

    Timothy J. Wengert (Author)

    Timothy J. Wengert explores the genesis of Lutheran biblical interpretation by tracing the early work and methods of Martin Luther and other Wittenberg exegetes. Their new approach led them to view Scripture in terms they called "law and gospel," to read and translate the Greek and Hebrew text, and to focus on a theology of the cross and justification by faith. Wengert then demonstrates how these approaches can used in preaching and teaching today.
