Reading Romans with Contemporary Philosophers and Theologians by David Odell-Scott

Reading Romans with Contemporary Philosophers and Theologians

Part of the Romans Through History and Culture Series


Reading Romans with Contemporary Philosophers and Theologians by David Odell-Scott

Reading Romans with Contemporary Philosophers and Theologians explores the recent works by philosophers and theologians who engage Paul's letter to the Romans by scholars in the fields of New Testament studies, theology and philosophy from North America and Europe. The first part of the volume presents an engaging discussion of the recently published commentary Romans (Chalice Press, 2005) by co-authors John Cobb and David Lull with Jouette Bassler and David Odell-Scott. The second part of the volume offers articles by Valerie Nicolet Anderson, Alain Gignac, Theodore Jennings and Ola Sigurdson which discuss recent works on Romans by continental philosophers such as Giorgio Agamben, Alain Badiou, Jacob Taubes and Slovoj Zizek. These articles explore the influences of Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Levinas, Benjamin, and Derrida on the recent interest in Saint Paul. The final chapter by Kathy Ehrensperger is an exploration of the possibility of a dialogue between Paul of Tarsus and Emmanuel Levinas. Romans through History and Cultures includes a wealth of information regarding the receptions of Romans throughout the history of the church and today, in the first and the two-thirds world. It explores the past and present impact of Romans upon theology, and upon cultural, political, social, and ecclesial life, and gender relations.
