Reading and Writing about Paul
This summer I’m doing an independent study course with Dr. Michael Gorman on Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox Perspectives on Paul, starting with an overview of the undisputed Pauline letters and then focusing specifically on the issue of justification. I’m particularly looking for conversation partners from Protestant and Orthodox faith traditions to chat with me about any of what I’m reading and writing.
Related to this, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend an informal colloquium given by N. T. Wright at the Ecumenical Institute of Theology on 10 May. He gave us a (necessarily, extremely compressed and) brief overview of the “big book on Paul” on which he has been working.
I’ve also written about Paul’s interesting literary figures involving faith, love, and hope in 1 Thess, and I expect I’ll be posting lots more about Paul this summer.
