Paul on Identity shows the inner connection in Paul's view of three distinct issues that all focus on identity: What defines the fundamental "Christ identity" for which Paul argues? How is it related to all other identities--of being a Jew or a non-Jew, a man or a woman, a master or a slave? How does Paul's understanding of the Christ identity inform his own way of writing to his addressees? The book raises the question of which among Paul's many teachings we may or may not accept. Finally, the book directly addresses the political relevance of Paul's thought for an American audience. Paul on Identity is written for non-experts and experts alike. By quoting liberally from Paul himself, Engberg-Pedersen brings him to life in the twenty-first century.
Troels Engberg-Pedersen was educated in classics and philosophy and has spent his life as a professor of New Testament at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. He has written monographs on Aristotle's ethics, Stoic ethics, Stoicism and Paul, and Stoicism and the Gospel of John, but a main focus has been Paul. He is currently working on a book on Paul's Second Letter to the Corinthians, aiming to show the unity of the letter. Engberg-Pedersen studies ancient material with an eye to its modern relevance. He is an elected member of the Royal Danish Academy of Science and the Norwegian Academy of Science.
