Review quote

"Reading through a political lens, these authors explore the political dimension of key Pauline terms and suggest how Paul engages imperial, political rhetoric... All will profit from exploring the political aspects of Paul's context and letters." Kenneth L.--Sanford Lakoff "Religious Studies Review "
