The Social-Science Commentary on the Deutero-Pauline Letters provides essential reading scenarios on specific cultural phenomena in these letters, including forgery, normative conflict, paideia (training), and Household Codes. This volume highlights the transformation of the memory of Paul in early Christianity as reflecting the concerns and interest of communities after Paul's death"--Publisher description.
