Summary

Summary

In this ground-breaking study of Paul, Dr Adams focuses on Paul's understanding and use of cosmological concepts, such as 'world' and 'creation'.Adams brings to bear the most recently developed disciplines, including 'critical linguistics', to the interpretation of Pauline texts, showing up, for example, the differing perspectives on the world of 1 Corinthians and Romans.He examines Paul's historical and social context and illuminates the whole cosmological project of Pauline Christianity.
