Paul and the Greco-Roman Philosophical Tradition provides a fresh
examination of the relationship of Greco-Roman philosophy to
Pauline Christianity. It offers an in-depth look at different
approaches employed by scholars who draw upon philosophical
settings in the ancient world to inform their understanding of
Paul. The volume houses an international team of scholars from a
range of diverse traditions and backgrounds, which opens up a
platform for multiple voices from various corridors. Consequently,
some of the chapters seek to establish new potential resonances
with Paul and the Greco-Roman philosophical tradition, but others
question such connections. While a number of them propose radically
new relationships between Paul and GrecoRoman philosophy, a few
seek to tweak or modulate current discussions. There are arguments
in the volume which are more technical and exegetical, and others
that remain more synthetic and theological. This diversity,
however, is accentuated by a goal shared by each author - to
further our understanding of Paul's relationship to and
appropriation of Greco-Roman philosophical traditions in his
literary and missionary efforts.
