This book, which grew out of the Society of Biblical Literature's Paul and Scripture Seminar, explores some of the methodological problems that have arisen during the last few decades of scholarly research on the apostle Paul's engagement with his ancestral Scriptures. Essays explore the historical backgrounds of Paul's interpretive practices, the question of Paul's “faithfulness” to the context of his biblical references, the presence of Scripture in letters other than the Hauptbriefe, and the role of Scripture in Paul's theology. All of the essays look at old questions through new lenses in an effort to break through scholarly impasses and advance the debate in new directions. The contributors are Matthew W. Bates, Linda L. Belleville, Roy E. Ciampa, Bruce N. Fisk, Stephen E. Fowl, Leonard Greenspoon, E. Elizabeth Johnson, Mitchell M. Kim, Steve Moyise, Jeremy Punt, Christopher D. Stanley, and Jerry L. Sumney.

The Paul and Scripture Seminar met for six years, 2005-10, under the aegis of the Society's annual meeting. It was intended to discuss and try to resolve methodological problems that had arisen in the study of the apostle Paul's many and varied references to the Jewish Scriptures. Papers from the first three were published in the 2008 As It Is Written: Studying Paul's Use of Scripture. Here are papers from the final three, along with some additional articles written expressly for the volume. The Society of Biblical Literature publishes the paperbound edition; Brill publishes the hardbound. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
