Product Description

Theology and rhetoric unite at their apex in the letters of Paul. Thompson theorizes that the apostle's primary methodology was the use of persuasion toward the goal of moral formation---a postulation which would explain the lack of complete consistency in Paul's writings, since he would need to change his tactics depending upon circumstances. 320 pages, hardcover from Baker.

Publisher's Description

This book is the culmination of a career of researching and teaching Paul's letters. Highly respected senior New Testament scholar James Thompson offers a unique approach to Pauline theology, focusing on Paul's attempts to persuade his audience toward moral formation. Thompson recognizes Paul as a pastor who brought together theology and rhetoric to encourage spiritual formation in his communities. Attempts to find total consistency in Paul's writings fail, says Thompson, because Paul's persuasive tactics changed depending on the situation he was addressing.
