Chapters in a Life of Paul ePub download

Knox succeeds in framing Pauline thought within a cogent skeleton that can withstand secular scrutiny. That beauty and simplicity is precisely what has made "Chapters in a Life of Paul" an enduring contribution to the church.

Knox succeeds in framing Pauline thought within a cogent skeleton that can withstand secular scrutiny. Modern scholarship is in a foot race to create tomes with exhaustive detail, and in the process loses both its message and its appeal to average Christian readers. Knox cuts through the fog surrounding Paul, and lets the reader form hand-holds to bring clarity to the cacophony. For those who are new to Pauline study, it is a valuable place to begin.

The book is revered because of its strong claims and provocative nature, but I scarcely saw Knox actually open the world of the text with nearly enough force and clarity as should be required to make such claims. Overall, an interesting read but unconvincing book.

Douglas R. A. Hare was a naturalized American professor and writer. He was born March 22, 1929, in Simcoe, Ontario. He died in May, 2015. Douglas R. Hare authored many books, articles and essays concerned with both the Old and New testaments and the Modern Christian Church. Hare’s books include "Matthew" for the well known "Interpretation" series; "The Son of Man"; "Mark," and "Chapters in the Life of Paul.

This book is concerned with the life of Paul as distinguished from his thought, but it is not a "life of Paul. Rather it is an attempt to deal with a few of the problems which a writer of such a life would have to consider, either as preliminary to, or in the course of, his work. The hypothesis concerning the chronology of Paul's career in Chapters III-V was originally stated in two articles of mine appearing in the Journal of Religion (XVI, 341 f. and the Journal of Biblical Literature (LVIII, 15 f.

Book by Knox, John
Hatе&love
This is really a beautifully written book that contains more than just a working out of a timeline of the life of the Apostle Paul. It also includes a very thoughtful and deep discussion of Paul's human nature as revealed by his writings as well as his theology as best as Knox could suss it out. Of course, there are many developments in Biblical criticism as well as discoveries of ancient texts that bear on the topic that might have given Knox further ideas; but for its time, this is a very forward-thinking book. Also, as I said, it is written with lucidity and charm.

Highly recommended

"Chapters in a Life of Paul" has become a standard in some Bible schools. It was required reading in a ThD class with J. Paul Sampley at Boston University School of Theology. The primary payoff for the reader is that Knox enables you to grapple with the right issues in understanding Paul's timeline, ordering his letters, and correlating Pauline events to historical markers. As was pointed out in a previous review, this is an easy read. This simplicity, though, is also its chief weakness. As an exemplar of a previous period of Biblical scholarship, Knox does not fill the page with copious notations, and so is only beneficial in forming a framework on which to build Pauline understanding. The reader will need to add the details from other authors. Knox succeeds in framing Pauline thought within a cogent skeleton that can withstand secular scrutiny. That beauty and simplicity is precisely what has made "Chapters in a Life of Paul" an enduring contribution to the church. Modern scholarship is in a foot race to create tomes with exhaustive detail, and in the process loses both its message and its appeal to average Christian readers. Knox cuts through the fog surrounding Paul, and lets the reader form hand-holds to bring clarity to the cacophony. For those who are new to Pauline study, it is a valuable place to begin. The seasoned veteran will also benefit by returning to the basics conceptualized by Knox, as a means to refocus on the truly important issues in Paul's occasional letters.
