IVP Dictionary of Paul and His Letters

Available Platforms

Description

The Dictionary of Paul and His Letters is a one-of-a-kind reference work. This dictionary is designed to bring students, teachers, ministers and laypeople up-to-speed on 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.

What others are saying...

"A mine of information for all students of Paul for many years to come." --N. T. Wright, Bishop of Durham
"The DPL provides an authoritative guide to Paul and his world for all who are interested." --James H. Charlesworth, Princeton Theological Seminary
"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..." --W. Ward Gasque, President, Pacific Association for Theological Studies
