  1. I think that I’d be inclined to encourage people to try something a bit more interpretative as well. Probably Dale Martin’s The Corinthian Body as one of the better examples of a reading which challenges a great deal of the thinking which tames Paul to a right-on emerging evangelical.

      • They do, but I think Martin offers historical reading which nonetheless approaches more of a contemporary cultural studies / queer theology / reader response approach than most. I think it’s that which makes his reading more challenging.

  2. Ah yes, now I gotcha. Gaventa’s work in Our Mother Saint Paul gets at some of that – I don’t particularly like Martin’s work, but I do appreciate works in general that think carefully about the reader and broader questions about the location and determination of ‘meaning.’
