Book Notes on Paul

The good folks over at Religious Studies Review have made a couple of my book notes available for viewing free of charge. The first one is on Joseph Plevnik's What are they Saying about Paul and the End Time? This is a very helpful book if you are looking for a survey on important issues in the study of Pauline eschatology. The second is Michael Trainor's Epaphras: Paul's Educator at Colossae. Trainor puts social networking analysis to work to propose a portrait of Epaphras as an intimate coworker of Paul who carried on an authoritative teaching role for the Christians in the Lycus Valley. You'll have to click-through to find out what I think about them. Typically, RSR requires a subscription of one sort or another to view publications online. So, I'm not sure how long these will be available.

Matt, your interest in Paul (or at least saturation because of your doctrinal thesis) is quite evident in your blog posts.

(At least, I believe I read that you were doing something about Paul in your thesis.)

Thanks.
