Paul and the Apocalyptic Imagination brings together eminent Pauline scholars from diverse perspectives, along with experts of Second Temple Judaism, Hellenistic philosophy, patristics, and modern theology, to explore the contours of the current debate. Contributors discuss what apocalypticism, and an "apocalyptic Paul," have meant at different times; examine different aspects of Paul's thought and practice; and show how different implicit understandings of apocalypticism shape different contemporary presentations of the apostle’s significance.
