Item Description...
Overview
Much of the popular understanding of the apostle Paul has been shaped, not by Paul's letters themselves, but by the Acts of the Apostles. This understanding, many believe, leads to misunderstanding Paul's theology. In The Apostle Paul and the Pauline Tradition Stephen Finlan takes a new approach, focusing on the letters themselves. He views the Pauline tradition as including the teachings and writings of Paul himself, the assimilation and often simplification of Paul's ideas by those who followed him and then wrote letters in his name, and the final form of the letters the church has labeled as Paul's. Through this broad, shifting, and expanding notion of tradition, readers will explore with Finlan such questions as: * What did Paul really think-and write-about Jesus, redemption, and the Christian life? * Who were the original audiences that first received these texts? * How and how much did Paul's followers change his ideas in the letters they wrote "for" him? Finlan is convinced that this "educated questioning and investigating becomes a valid part of the life of faith-not replacing faith, but joined to it." Through his accessibly written text, readers in the end will understand and agree.

He views the Pauline tradition as including the teachings and writings of Paul himself, the assimilation and often simplification of Paul's ideas by those who followed him and then wrote letters in his name, and the final form of the letters the church has labeled as Paul's. Through this broad, shifting, and expanding notion of tradition, readers will explore with Finlan such questions as: ' What did Paul really think 'and write 'about Jesus, redemption, and the Christian life?
' Who were the original audiences that first received these texts?
' How and how much did Paul's followers change his ideas in the letters they wrote for" him?

Finlan is convinced that this educated questioning and investigating becomes a valid part of the life of faith 'not "replacing faith, " but joined to it. Through his accessibly written text, readers in the end will understand and agree.

He is also author of "Problems with Atonement" and "Options on Atonement in Christian Thought" (both published by Liturgical Press) as well as "The Background and Content of Paul's Cultic Atonement Metaphors" (SBL and Brill, 2004).""

More About Stephen Finlan
Stephen Finlan I taught Theology and general Humanities at universities and seminaries for 13 years, but now I am the pastor of Mathewson Street United Methodist Church in Providence, RI. I am interested in preaching the gospel and in discovering the transforming power of the Spirit. I have a Ph.D. in Pauline Theology from University of Durham, and have been writing about Jesus, Paul, atonement, and theosis for many years. I have strongly held views on these subjects, but I also seek lively and varied debate from those who have other views. The "strongly held" aspect is probably seen in my _Problems with Atonement_, whle my "open to debate" aspect is seen in my _Options on Atonement_ and _The Apostle Paul_.
