In this groundbreaking study of Paul, Adams focuses on Paul's understanding and use of cosmological concepts, such as "world" and "creation".

Adams brings to bear the most recently developed disciplines, including "critical linguistics" to the interpretation of Pauline texts, showing, for example, the differing perspectives on the world of I Corinthians and Romans.

He examines Paul's historical and social context and illuminates the whole cosmological project of Pauline Christianity.

Industry Reviews

"With this work, Adams breaks new methodological ground and provides fresh insight into Paul's use of language in 'world construction'." Religious Studies Review, July 2001 'Overall, this is a convincing study, which illustrates the diversity within the Pauline churches and the corresponding diversity in Paul's epistolary strategy. As such it warns against any over-easy generalisations - sociological or theological - about the meaning of certain terms in Paul's vocabulary and about the character and development of early Pauline Christianity.' David G. Horrell, Theology'A worthy addition to a distinguished series.' R. Barry Matlock, University of Sheffield, Expository Times'. . . will surely become essential reading for all Pauline studies, especially for research students. Accessible and thoroughgoing, this book is to be strongly commended to librarians and supervisors where Pauline studies are taken seriously; thoughtful preachers will find its discussion one to enrich their understanding of Paul.' Peter Doble, University of Leeds, Theological Book Review
