Colonized Apostle : Paul Through Postcolonial Eyes


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.
