Product Description

This book contains some of Richard B. Hays's best scholarship on Paul. These fine studies together constitute a probing examination of Paul's approach to scriptural interpretation, showing how Paul's reading of the Hebrew texts reshaped the theological vision of his churches. Hays's analysis of intertextual echoes in Paul's letters has touched off exciting debate among Pauline scholars and sharpened our knowledge of the contours of Paul's thought. These essays contain some of the early work leading up to Hays's seminal study Echoes of Scripture in the Letters of Paul and also shows how he has responded to critics and further developed his thought in the years since. Among the many subjects covered here are Paul's christological application of Psalms, Paul's revisionary interpretation of the Law, and the influence of the Old Testament on Paul's ethical teachings and his understanding of the church. The Conversion of the Imagination is essential reading for anyone interested in following the current discussion of Pauline theology.
