Product description
Combining historical, exegetical, and theological interests, Bruce Longenecker here dispels the widespread notion that Paul had little or no concern for the poor.
Longneckers analysis of Greco-Roman poverty provides the backdrop for a compelling presentation of the importance of care for the poor within Pauls theology and the Jesus-groups he had established. Along the way, Longenecker calls into question a variety of interpretive paradigms such as Steven J. Friesens 2004 poverty scale and offers a fresh vision in which Pauls theological resources are shown to be both historically significant and theologically challenging.
