Paul and the Giants of Philosophy: Reading the Apostle in Greco-Roman Context

For the Olive Tree Bible App

Title: Paul and the Giants of Philosophy: Reading the Apostle in Greco-Roman Context
Publisher: InterVarsity Press (IVP)
Author: Joseph R Dodson and David E Briones

Description

What forces shaped the intellectual world of the apostle Paul? How familiar was he with the great philosophers of his age, and to what extent was he influenced by them? When he quoted Greco-Roman sources, what was his aim? Pauline scholars wrestle with such questions in journal articles and technical monographs, but now Paul and the Giants of Philosophy brings the conversation into the college classroom and the church. Each essay addresses Paul's interaction with Greco-Roman philosophical thinking on a particular topic, such as faith, slavery, gift-giving, and the afterlife. And each chapter includes discussion questions and reading lists to help readers engage the material further. Dodson and Briones have gathered contributors with diverse views from various traditions who are united in the desire to make Paul's engagement with ancient philosophy accessible to many readers.
