Product Description

"I return to Schutz's work with pleasure: how sophisticated this was---and is. To put it bluntly, how much more careful and illuminating and persuasive it is than so much that has been written since then at the border between the social sciences and the study of ancient Christianity and its texts. . . . He pushes us to think along with him and with the texts he expounds, to pursue again the elusive rationale from which they spring. It is for this reason that I can invite a reader today to discover the treasures of this book appearing again after a third of a century. Not that it is an easy read: it is a scholarly monograph that makes no pretense of being popular. Yet its simple elegance, the directness and clarity of its arguments, touched by flashes of sardonic humor that every acquaintance of John Schutz will recognize, are immensely appealing."
-Wayne A. Meeks, from the new introduction

John Howard Schutz's milestone analysis of Paul's authority shaped a generation of scholars in how to think about Paul. First appearing in 1975, this volume has long been unavailable, but it stands as a significant voice that scholarship today needs to hear.

John Howard Schutz taught New Testament at University of North Carolina, Charlotte.

Wayne A. Meeks is Woolsey Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies at Yale University.

    Presented in a most scholarly fashion, Dr. Schutz presents arguments that cause the reader to develop new insights into the life and motives of the Apostle Paul which enrich and give an even stronger basis for the deep, abiding faith and devotion of his life in the service of Jesus Christ, the one and only one he loved and served, to the fullest extent, regardless of the circumstances, throughout his earthly life.

    What an incredible book! Schutz had a brilliant analytical mind. He does not "wrestle" with the texts - he explicates the meaning effortlessly and with clarity. The subject is by definition a controversial and diverse one, but Schutz has a grasp on the Greek, eschatology , theology - you name it, he shows a complete all-round ability to present his case, and by refuting, in part or whole, the voices of the past that spoke with authority before him, he resides over the so-called "modern academia" with unassuming integrity. This book is conservative and really informed my theology and clarified many issues I have with today's structures in the ecclesia. Varied and faulty interpretations of autonomy and authority that justify their existence in Christ's body today, will do their utmost to avoid this revealing book. If you think you are in St Paul's league, or even better, a super-apostle - be prepared for your deception to be 'unveiled'.
