Paul and the Person: Reframing Paul's Anthropology

Product Description

In Paul and the Person, Susan Grove Eastman presents a fresh and innovative exploration of Paul's participatory theology in conversation with both ancient and contemporary conceptions of the self. Juxtaposing Paul, ancient philosophers, and modern theorists of the person, Eastman opens up a conversation that illuminates Paul's thought in new ways and brings his voice into current debates about personhood.

Eastman devotes close attention to the Pauline letters within their first-century context, particularly the Greco-Roman fascination with questions of performance and identity. At the same time, she draws out connections to recent trends in psychology and neurobiology in order to situate Paul's insights in deep dialogue with contemporary understandings of human identity.

Editorial Reviews

— Michael J. Gorman
St. Mary’s Seminary & University
"Eastman’s interdisciplinary study of Paul’s anthropology, in conversation with voices ancient and modern, contends that participation, imitation, and relationality are at the heart of being a person. Elegantly written and persuasively argued, this groundbreaking book also invites further conversation. A remarkable achievement."

— L. Ann Jervis
Wycliffe College, University of Toronto
"An erudite and energetic reframing of Paul’s understanding of human identity and personhood. Eastman’s penetrating and expansive interpretation is a bold, insightful, and important addition to biblical study."

— John M. G. Barclay (from foreword)
Durham University
"Susan Eastman is an intellectual explorer. From the familiar terrain of Paul’s statements about humanity she has gone in search of concepts, frames of reference, and models of personhood that could help us make sense of Paul. She has traveled far, into philosophy (ancient and modern), neuroscience, and experimental psychology—mostly territory unknown to biblical scholars—and she has returned in triumph. . . . This book [gives] us rich new insight into Paul and well-conceived language with which to communicate his theology effectively today."
