John Chrysostom and the Art of Pauline Interpretation
By Margaret M. Mitchell
597 Pages, Illustrated
The author argues that all Pauline interpretation depends to a large degree upon the ways in which readers formulate their own mental and graphic images of Paul. John Chrysostom, the most prolific interpreter of the Pauline epistles in the early church, exemplifies this phenomenon in his writings and speeches. Chapters include: "Of All the Saints I Love Paul the Most," "The Archetypal Image," "The Warm Lover of Christ," "Portraits of Paul's Body and Soul," "Biographical Portraits of Paul," Historiographical issues in Pauline Interpretation, the Art of Pauline Interpretation, appendices, plates, bibliography, indices.
