Product Description

Echoes Of Scripture in the Letters Of Paul examines the Pauline letters. Paul's letters are filled with allusions, images, and quotations from the Old Testament, or, as Paul called it, Scripture. In this book Richard B. Hays investigates Paul's appropriation of Scripture from a perspective based on recent literary-critical studies of intertextuality. His uncovering of scriptural echoes in Paul's language enriches our appreciation of the complex literary texture of Paul's letters and offers new insight into his message.

Publisher's Description

Paul’s letters, the earliest writings in the New Testament, are filled with allusions, images, and quotations from the Old Testament, or, as Paul called it, Scripture. In this book, Richard B. Hays investigates Paul’s appropriation of Scripture from a perspective based on recent literary-critical studies of intertextuality. His uncovering of scriptural echoes in Paul’s language enriches our appreciation of the complex literary texture of Paul’s letters and offers new insights into his message.
 
"A major work on hermeneutics. . . . Hays’s study will be a work to use and to reckon with for every Pauline scholar and for every student of Paul’s use of Old Testament traditions. It is sophisticated, in both a literary and theological sense, and written with considerable wit and confidence."—Carol L. Stockenhausen, Journal of Biblical Literature

"Hays has without doubt posed the right question at the right time within the horizon of a particularly important problematic. . . . A new beginning for the question concerning the reception of the Old Testament in the New."—Hans Hübner, Theologische Literaturzeitung

"A powerful reading. . . . [Hays’s] careful and fresh exegesis . . . challenges not a few traditional or highly regarded readings. . . . A major contribution both to Pauline studies and to our understanding of earliest Christian theology as a living dialogue with the scriptures of Israel."—James D. G. Dunn, forthcoming in Literature and Theology

"A fresh interpretation of Paul’s references to the Jewish Scriptures. . . . Written in a lively, semipopular style, this important study succeeds in showing that Paul’s scriptural quotations and allusions are often more ’polyphonic’ and rhetorically meaningful than traditional exegesis has allowed."—David M. Hay, Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology

    This book is a classic! And it hardly needs to be reviewed as it has received almost universal acclaim for its freshness and creativity. It is certainly a "must-read" for anyone interested in doing serious and sensitive reading of Paul as an interpreter of Israel's Scripture.For those also interested in the "new perspective on Paul," this is a crucial work to have in one's scholarly arsenal. Hays is not directly addressing or advocating for the NPP, but his exegesis of Paul is characterized by the same sensitivity to Paul's and apostolic Christianty's socio-cultural-historical context--especially in regards to Paul's background as a pharisaic Jew and the fundamental question which characterized early Christianity about the place of the Gentiles in the New covenant community.Hays's work is such a healthy corrective to the evangelical tendency to read Paul's letters, and the Bible as a whole, as a list of doctrinal propositions rather than literary, communicative expressions. This book will certainly challenge all readers and lead in exciting and fruitful new directions in the challenging task of responsibly reading Paul.
