4.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening work on the historical climate of Paul's day, January 23, 2009
This review is from: The Corinthian Body (Paperback)
This is a book that was required for a class I took last year on the Pauline corpus. The book provides insight into why Paul said what he said and why others wanted to be associated with him as well as against him. Heirarchy and skin color were important markers as to how people were valued and treated in that day and time, issues that still exist for us in the USA. How closely do we follow the baptismal formula of Galatian 3:28, believed to be authentically Pauline??

Being a student of Mr. Martin's lectures on the New Testament, it seems this reviewer has not fully understood the message of this book. As I understand it, the book was written to enlighten the reader as to the hierarchy of the people in the Corinthian churches, and the difficulties they were having coming together as one. The Galatian churches did not seem to have these same problems and a reference to Galatian 3:28 does not seem to be an appropriate critique. More of an comment on what she believes to be the racial and social divide found in the USA in modern times.
