"The Conversion of the Imagination contains selected essays of Richard Hays on Pauline hermeneutics, written over a period of more than twenty years. Together, they constitute a probing examination of Paul's approach to scriptural interpretation, showing that Paul's readings of Israel's Scripture sought to reshape the theological imagination of his churches.

Victor Paul Furnish Richard Hays not only invites us to consider the formative role that Israel's Scripture played in Paul's thought. He also challenges us to learn from the apostle what it means to read Scripture faithfully, attentive to its "gracious word of promise." These are important essays, devoted to a critical topic, from a noted New Testament interpreter.
