Product Description

Does a first-century Christian have anything relevant to say to modern Americans? You bet! Jewett shows you how the Apostle Paul addresses our contemporary culture in some unexpected ways. He relates books, movies, and other popular entertainment to Paul's thoughts about religious pluralism, sexual liberation, human development, and more. Jewett's engaging and often-humorous analysis of American society will sharpen your understanding of how to apply the Bible to today's world, while his mini-histories of Pauline scholarship are well worth reading in their own right. 192 pages, softcover from Westminster.

Publisher's Description

Using a nontechnical presentation of recent research and a sometimes-whimsical treatment of contemporary artifacts, Robert Jewett shows how Paul engages and challenges American society in unexpected ways. He offers preliminary explorations of the relevance of Paul's letters to the American scene and exploits the resources of scientific biblical research that allow Paul's message to be clarified. Important trends in American culture, including popular entertainment and books, are brought into interaction with freshly discovered aspects of Pauline thought.
