Paul’s Theology in Context: Creation, Incarnation, Covenant, and Kingdom
James P. Ware
This text provides both a concise guide to Paul’s theology and a general introduction to the key issues and debates in the contemporary study of Paul.
Examining Paul’s message in the context of the ancient world, Ware identifies what would have struck Paul’s original audience as startling or unique. By comparing Paul’s teaching to the other religions and philosophies of that day, Ware presents a fresh perspective on Paul’s theology, revealing four pillars of his thought: creation, incarnation, covenant, and kingdom. After examining each of these dimensions of Paul’s gospel, Ware explores the historical role of Paul within Christian origins and the astounding evidence embedded in his letters regarding the beginnings of Christianity and the eyewitness origins of the gospels.

Raymond E. Brown and the Catholic Biblical Renewal
Donald Senior, CP;
Distinguished biblical scholar Donald Senior has written a comprehensive, analytical and critical, and deeply appreciative biography of one of greatest biblical scholars of the 20th century that locates him within the sweep and drama of the Catholic biblical renewal, especially in the United States.
Exploring the life of Raymond Brown is also to be plunged into one of the most remarkable periods in the history of the Catholic Church. Brown’s exceptional personal gifts and his formative experiences explain a lot about his future professional life and the impact it had on the Catholic Church in the United States.
At the same time, tracking the evolution of his publications and his reflections on his methodology illumines the struggle within Roman Catholicism to absorb historical critical methods of studying the Bible, while attempting at the same time to maintain Catholic tradition and doctrine. Brown stood at the very epicenter of that struggle, a struggle whose reverberations are still part of the atmosphere of Catholicism today.
