The Colonized Apostle: Paul Through Postcolonial Eyes (Paul in Critical Contexts) Hardcover – March 1, 2021
Enhance your purchase
How did Roman imperial culture shape the environment in which Paul carried out his apostolate? How do the multiple legacies of modern colonialism and contemporary empire shape, illuminate, or obscure our readings of Paul's letters? In The Colonized Apostle, Christopher D. Stanley has gathered many of the foremost voices in postcolonial and empire-critical scholarship on Paul to provide a state-of-the-art guide to these questions.
This latest addition to the Paul in Critical Contexts series includes essays introducing postcolonial criticism and applying its insights both to Paul's context in the Roman world and to the reevaluation of contemporary interpretation. Contributors include Susan Abraham, Jennifer Bird, Neil Elliott, L. Ann Jervis, Melanie Johnson-DeBaufre, Brigitte Kahl, Jae Won Lee, Tat-Siong Benny Liew, Davina C. Lopez, Joseph A. Marchal, Stephen D. Moore, Laura S. Nasrallah, Jeremy A. Punt, Robert P. Seesengood, and Gordon M. Zerbe.

The material is spectacular. The chapters are groundbreaking, especially the Elliott and the Nasrallah/Johnson-Debaufre. But with dodgy links from the table of contents, no page-flip below, no page numbers, and end-notes that aren't linked (and Lord knows if the links would work in the first place), it's almost impossible to work with. I'd probably drop three digits on a used paper copy of this book, but there don't seem to be any available. Fortress, please fix this.
