Product DescriptionIn 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.ReviewJohn M. G. Barclay -from the foreword ?These essays demonstrate the very best of what it is to be a biblical scholar in the early twenty-first century.?Margaret Y. MacDonald -Saint Mary's University ?Representing almost two decades of investigation, the essays reflect not only the best of scholarship on socio-historical context, but also thought-provoking dialogue between the ancient texts and modern ethical challenges. This is a learned but also highly accessible book, of interest to a range of readers, including students and senior scholars alike.?Ruben Zimmermann -Johannes Gutenberg-University ?This volume comes with my highest recommendation for anyone interested in stimulating, inspiring, and relevant Pauline scholarship.?About the AuthorJohn M. G. Barclay is Lightfoot Professor of Divinity at Durham University. His previous books include Pauline Churches and Diaspora Jews and Obeying the Truth: Paul's Ethics in Galatians.
