Violence, scripture, and textual practice in early Judaism and Christianity by Raʻanan S Boustan( )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume analyzes the various and overlapping discourses of a oereligious violencea that emerged within Jewish and Christian culture in the Roman world. Toward this end, the nine papers collected here address both the presence of violence within the authoritative scriptural traditions of early Judaism and Christianity and the redeployment of these older traditions to represent, legitimate, and indeed sacralize violence. Individual papers focus on the specific social and historical contexts from which these texts emerged, while the volume as a whole highlights the patterns of textual practic
Pauline conversations in context : essays in honor of Calvin J. Roetzel( )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 'conversations' in this collection open by challenging ideas that have become standard and subject them to critical re-examination. The central thread of all these essays is a reflection on the processes of reading and theologizing. Among the contributors to this volume are David E. Aune, Jouette Bassler, Daniel Boyarin, Neil Elliott, Victor Paul Furnish, Lloyd Gaston, Steven J. Kraftchick, Robert C. Morgan, J. Andrew Overman, Mark Reasoner, Peter Richardson, and Robin Scroggs. Juanita Garciagodoy and David H. Hopper offer appreciations of Calvin Roetzel as a teacher and colleague."--Bloomsbury Publishing

In this book, Calvin Roetzel explores the social, political, religious, and intellectual environment of the New Testament writers.

Paul : the man and the myth by Calvin J Roetzel( Book )

28 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul: The Man and the Myth opens the window into the humanity of the most influential apostle of the early Christian church and, in doing so, offers a fresh view of this important historical figure. In examining the apostle and his theology, Calvin J. Roetzel vividly depicts Paul's world - the land where he grew up, the language he spoke, the scriptures he studied, and the lessons he learned in letter writing and rhetoric. Roetzel presents an evangelist anxious about the welfare of his churches, a theologian facing fierce opposition, a missionary at the mercy of the elements, and a man suffering physical assault, slander, and imprisonment. In contrast to the powerful hero described in Acts and the Apocryphal Acts, Roetzel's portrayal presents a physically weak, even sickly, theologian; a letter writer; and a preacher unskilled in speech." "Questioning the historicity of widely held beliefs about the apostle - including his Roman citizenship - Roetzel suggests that Paul never abandoned ties to his native Judaism or to the Hellenistic culture of his childhood. Roetzel underscores that no matter how Paul's image has changed through history, he remains forever tied to support for the weak and vulnerable, faith in one God, and the transgressing of social boundaries."--Jacket
Judgement in the community : a study of the relationship between eschatology and ecclesiology in Paul by Calvin J Roetzel( Book )

16 editions published in 1972 in 4 languages and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul, a Jew on the margins by Calvin J Roetzel( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul's messianism put him at the margins of Pharisaism. His preaching placed him in tension with the Synagogue. His Gospel set him on the outer border of Hellenistic religion. Situated on the edge of every sect and popular philosophy he engaged, Paul's radical marginality was ever letting loose an abundance of tension and creativity." "In Paul - A Jew on the Margins, Calvin Roetzel explains Paul's complex relationship to first-century Judaism and elements of the early church. In so doing, he tackles a great many of the most disputed areas of Pauline theology: How can we speak of Paul as a convert? How far did Paul accept the apocalyptic myth? What are we to make of Paul's theology of weakness? How far did Paul embrace pluralism? And how could Paul preach that Gentiles shared in God's election without excluding Jews? An illuminating and essential study for all serious explorations into the life of Paul."--Jacket

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Envisioning God in the humanities : essays on Christianity, Judaism, and ancient religion in honor of Melissa Harl Sellew by Courtney J. P Friesen( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The humanities offer insights into the highest (and lowest) capabilities of our own natures and, at their best, they function as prophetic champions of human dignity and as inspired celebrants of beauty. Envisioning God in the Humanities pays tribute to the career of Melissa Harl Sellew, a scholar and teacher who embodies the ideals of these academic disciplines. The collaboration of these essays attests to the potentialities for transcendence that emerge from rigorous and collective reflection on the texts, images, and ideas produced in ancient societies. Taking its cue from Professor Sellew's own distinguished scholarship, this collection of studies begins with analyses of the New Testament Gospels, then moves more broadly toward the religious life of the ancient world as attested both in literature and materiality, among Jews and Christians, Greeks and Romans. Just as Sellew has done throughout her career, so this volume invites us into to the joy of exploring distant societies and, in so doing, into the fuller discovery of one's own self. Courtney J.P. Friesen is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies and Classics at the University of Arizona, Tucson. He is author of Reading Dionysus (2015)
