The social ethos of the Corinthian correspondence : interests and ideology from 1 Corinthians to 1 Clement by David G Horrell( )

14 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 1,240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The work of social theorist Anthony Giddens provides the basis for a critical discussion of current methods employed in sociological studies of the New Testament and for the presentation of a new approach." "The focus of these studies is the Corinthian correspondence, including both the letters written by Paul and the letter known as 1 Clement, sent from Rome to Corinth around the end of the first century. This correspondence provides rich material for a study of the social ethos of early Christian teaching and its development. It allows an assessment of how Pauline Christianity shapes relationships within the Christian community and how the social ethos of the 'symbolic order' changes as it develops through time in a changing context. Throughout David Horrell also explores where and how the different teachings serve to legitimate or sustain the dominant social order and the interests and positions of the socially powerful."--Jacket

Solidarity and difference : a contemporary reading of Paul's ethics by David G Horrell( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1 Peter (New Testament Guides) by David G Horrell( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers a concise and accessible introduction to 1 Peter, especially aimed at undergraduate-level students. It provides information on the likely historical and social setting of this letter, on its literary form and theological content, and on issues involved in its interpretation. In particular, this volume suggests that 1 Peter is an important text not least for the ways in which it both reflects and constructs early Christian identity, in its relationships with Judaism and the Roman Empire. Although 1 Peter remains neglected compared with the canonical gospels and the major Pauline letters, Horrell argues that the letter deserves much more attention for the pivotal contribution it makes to the development of early Christianity and for the ways in which it reveals this development in progress
Christianity at Corinth : the quest for the Pauline Church by Edward Adams( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First Corinthians provides a unique glimpse info the life of a young Christian community in a Greco-Roman environment during the early decades of emerging Christianity. It supplies a range and richness of information about the early church that is unparalleled by any other New Testament document. Much effort has gone into reconstructing Christianity at Corinth; more recently, attention has focused on the Corinthian community itself. The scholarly picture of the Corinthian Christians throughout the period of modern interpretation has been far from constant, and their profile has altered as interpretive fashions have shifted. This collection of classic and new essays charts the history of the scholarly quest for the Corinthian church from F.C. Baur to the present day, and offers the reflections of leading scholars on where the quest has taken us and its future direction

An introduction to the study of Paul by David G Horrell( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and Korean and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study introduces its readers to the different aspects of the study of the apostle Paul. It aims primarily not to present its author's own interpretation of Paul, but to introduce students to the differing positions and methods developed by contemporary scholars in Pauline studies. By setting out these views, and the evidence on which they are based, it equips the reader to approach the study of Paul with an awareness of the range of current debate and a knowledge of the evidence and arguments they will encounter." "After considering Paul's importance and influence, and the important sources for the study of Paul, the book examines: the earliest period of Christianity - from Jesus to Paul; Paul's life before and after his 'conversion'; his individual letters; the major elements of his theology; his attitude to Israel and the Jewish law; new approaches to the study of Paul, including social-scientific and feminist approaches; and Paul's legacy in the New Testament and beyond." "In reviewing new approaches to Paul the book examines his life and the major elements of his theology, and concludes with a strong argument for Paul's contemporary relevance."--BOOK JACKET

Greening Paul : rereading the apostle in a time of ecological crisis by David G Horrell( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A remarkable, wide-ranging attempt to read the Pauline literature from an ecological perspective, Greening Paul, the first book of its kind, traverses carefully between extremes claiming to present Paul's narrative world and simply subjugating the Bible to a contemporary set of ethical values. Skillfully the authors craft their reading of Paul according to the cutting-edge insights of narrative criticism and tackle burning questions which assail Christians in the present ecological crisis: Does the biblical tradition inculcate an anthropocentric worldview that gives humanity license to exploit the earth for our benefit? Does biblical eschatology imply that the earth is of only passing significance for the elect? Greening Paul is a timely and adroit re-reading of the apostle Paul that provides a potentially very fruitful ecological vision, all the while staying true to the biblical text

Becoming Christian : essays on 1 Peter and the making of Christian identity by David G Horrell( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first letter of Peter remains a relatively neglected corner of the New Testament: the number of monographs devoted to it is tiny, compared with those on the Gospels and Pauline letters. Yet it is a text - so this book argues - that offers much insight into crucial processes in the development of Christian identity. In particular, 1 Peter illustrates with particular clarity the complex ways in which Christian identity was forged from Jewish traditions and negotiated in the generally hostile Roman empire. As such, studies of this particular letter illuminate central themes in the making of Christianity in the earliest centuries."Becoming Christian" is a collection of essays that treat various facets of the first letter of Peter, in its social and historical setting, in some cases using new social-scientific and postcolonial methods to shed light on the ways in which the letter contributes to the making of Christian identity. At the heart of the book are chapters 5-7, which examine the contribution of 1 Peter to the construction of Christian identity, the persecution and suffering of Christians in Asia Minor, the significance of the name ‘Christian', and the response of the letter to the hostility encountered by Christians in society. There are no recent books which bring together such a wealth of information and analysis of this crucial early Christian text. "Becoming Christian" has developed out of Horrell's ongoing research for the International Critical Commentary on 1 Peter. Together these essays will offer a series of significant and original engagements with this letter, and a resource for studies of 1 Peter for some time to come"--Amazon.com
The Epistles of Peter and Jude by David G Horrell( Book )

2 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These somewhat neglected epistles not only offer much interesting insight into the character of early Christianity but also raise questions about how contemporary Christians are to regard the Bible. Dr. Horrell acknowledges the difficulties, provides a contemporary response to them, explains what the epistles have to say about God, Christ and the Spirit, about Christian identity and hope, and considers their role in responsible community life today."--BOOK JACKET

The making of Christian morality : reading Paul in ancient and modern contexts by David G Horrell( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume David Horrell focuses on themes of community, ethics, and ecology in Paul, moving from the concrete social circumstances in which the earliest Christian communities gathered to the appropriation of Paul's writings in relation to modern ethical challenges. Often questioning established consensus positions, Horrell opens up new perspectives and engages with ongoing debates both in Pauline studies and in contemporary ethics. After covering historical questions about the setting of the Paul-ine communities, The Making of Christian Morality analyzes Paul-ine ethics through a detailed study of particular passages. In the third and final section Horrell brings Pauline thought to bear on contemporary issues and challenges, using the environmen­tal crisis as a case study to demonstrate how Paul's ethics can be appropriated fruitfully in a world so different from Paul's own
Ethnicity, race, religion : identities and ideologies in early Jewish and Christian texts, and in modern biblical interpretation by David G Horrell( )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religion, ethnicity and race are facets of identity that have become increasingly contested. They intersect and overlap in complex and varied ways, and study of the Bible and Christian origins contributes much to a discussion of these ideas. The modern discipline of biblical studies developed in the context of Western Europe, concurrent with the emergence of various racial and imperial ideologies. The essays in this volume deal both with historical facets of ethnicity and race in antiquity, in particular in relation to the identities of Jews and Christians and also with the critique of scholarly ideologies and racial assumptions which have shaped biblical studies. Together, the essays critique various Western European and North American contexts, and bring fresh perspectives from other global contexts, providing insights into how biblical studies can escape its enmeshment in Western (often racist) notions of ethnicity, race, empire, nationhood and religion
