The "powers" of personification : rhetorical purpose in the book of Wisdom and the letter to the Romans by Joseph R Dodson( )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and German and held by 1,336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While scholars have often found value in comparing Wisdom and Romans, a comparison of the use of personification in these works has not yet been made, despite the striking parallels between them. Furthermore, while scholars have studied many of these personifications in detail, no one has investigated an individual personification with respect to the general use of the trope in the work. Instead, most of this research focuses on a personification in relation to its nature as either a rhetorical device or a supernatural power. The?Powers? of Personification seeks to push beyond this debate by

Paul and the Greco-Roman philosophical tradition by Andrew W Pitts( Book )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides a fresh examination of the relationship of Greco-Roman philosophy to Pauline Christianity and an in-depth look at different approaches currently employed by scholars who draw upon philosophical settings in the ancient world to inform their understanding of Paul. The book is divided into two sections, one consisting of essays that situate Greco-Roman philosophy as a social setting for Pauline Christianity, and one consisting of exegetical studies dealing with various passages where motifs emerging from ancient philosophical culture provide illumination. The chapters summarize the state of the discussion on Paul's relationship to the Greco-Roman philosophical tradition, examine obstacles to positioning Paul in relation to ancient philosophy, compare different approaches, and compile the diverse methodologies into a single comparative study. It then interrogates several philosophical motifs for the exegetical insights that they may yield when interpreting Paul's letters
Paul and Seneca in dialogue by Joey Dodson( Book )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul and Seneca in Dialogue' assembles an international group of scholars to compare the philosophical and theological strands in Paul and Seneca?s writings, placing them in dialogue with one another. Arguably, no other first-century, non-Christian writer?s thoughts resemble Paul?s as closely as Seneca?s, and scholars have often found value in comparing Pauline concepts with Seneca?s writings. Nevertheless, apart from the occasional article, broad comparison, or cross-reference, an in-depth critical comparison of these writers has not been attempted for over fifty years? since Sevenster?s monograph of 1961. In the light of the vast amount of research offering new perspectives on both Paul and Seneca since the early 1960s, this new comparison of the two writers is long overdue
A little book for new Bible scholars by E. Randolph Richards( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many young Bible scholars are passionate for the Scriptures. But is passion enough? In A Little Book for New Bible Scholars, Randolph Richards and Joseph Dodson encourage young students of the Bible to add substance to their zeal--the kind of substance that comes from the sweat and toil of hard study. "Just as we should avoid knowledge without love," they write, "we should also avoid love without knowledge." Aimed at beginners, this concise overview offers a wealth of good advice, warns of potential pitfalls, and includes wisdom from a variety of other biblical scholars as well as stories from the authors' own long experience in the guild. Full of warmth, humor, and an infectious love for Scripture, this book invites a new generation of young scholars to roll up their sleeves and dig into the complex, captivating world of the Bible."--
