Dictionary of Paul and His Letters
Edited by Gerald F. Hawthorne, Ralph P. Martin and Daniel G. Reid
From The Publisher:
The Dictionary of Paul and His Letters is one-of-a-kind reference work. Following the format of its highly successful companion voume, the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels, this Dictionary is designed to bring students, teachers, ministers and laypeople abreast of the established conclusions and significant recent developments in Pauline scholarship.
No other single reference work presents as much information focused exclusively on Pauline theology, literature, background and scholarship. In a field that recently has undergone significant shifts in perspective, the Dictionary of Paul and His Letters offers a summa of Paul and Pauline studies. In-depth articles focus on individual theological themes (such as law, resurrection and Son of God), broad theological topics (such as Christology, eschatology, and the death of Christ), methods of interpretation (such as rhetorical criticism and social-scientific approaches), background topics (such as apocalypticism, Hellenism and Qumran) and various other subjects specifically related to the scholarly study of Pauline theology and literature (such as early catholicism, the center of Paul's theology, and Paul and his interpreters since F. C. Baur). Separate articles are also devoted to each of the Pauline letters, to hermeneutics and to preaching Paul today.
The Dictionary of Paul and His Letters takes its place alongside the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels in presenting the fruit of evangelical New Testament scholarship at the end of the twentieth century — committed to the authority of Scripture, utilizing the best of critical methods, and maintaining dialogue with contemporary scholarship and challenges facing the church. Designed to bring students, teachers, pastors and general readers up to date and up to speed, this dictionary presents more information than any other single work-dealing exclusively with Pauline theology, literature, background and scholarship
"In the present state of Pauline studies a dictionary of this sort is timely and well-conceived."
—Charles F. Moule, University of Cambridge
"The DPL is a quiet magnificent achievemnet; a reliable and comprehensive guide which will be invaluable for specialists, teachers, clergy and students."
—Graham N. Stanton, King's College London, University of London
"The DPL provides an authoritative guide to Paul and his world for all who are interested."
—James H. Charlesworth, Princeton Theological Seminary
"The editors, contributors and publishers are to be congratulated for this handsome, 'user-friendly' volume which serves up many hearty and healthy Paulinemeals that are suitable for a variety of diets--the inquisitve layperson, the hard-pressed pastor, the industrious student, the overburdened teacher and the seasoned scholar."
—Murray J. Harris, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"A mine of information for all students of Paul for many years to come."
—N.T. Wright, Worcester College, Oxford
"The DPL will be a great help for students of theology and men and women in ministry, as well as for academic theologians."
— Peter Stuhlmacher, University of Tubingen
"The DPL is an informed, up-to-date and helpful introduction to Paul's thought and letters. Bringing together a great deal of significant material on crucial topics in the study of Paul, it serves admirably not only as an important text for theological students . . .but also as a vital resource for active ministers in their faithful proclamation and application of the gospel"
—Richard N. Longenecker, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto
"In this splendid new reference work the serious student of the Bible will find a comprehensive summary of the best of modern scholarship concerning the life, times and thought of St. Paul . . . . I will be recommending it enthusiastically to my students and consulting it regularly in my personal study."
—W.Ward Gasque, Eastern College
