Readers of Paul’s letters have long noted the diversity of the Christian communities to which he writes and the different approaches he takes towards their problems and questions. This course will study Paul’s letters from the point of his role as a pastor and theologian. Paul’s theology does not develop out of a philosophical or theological “system” but from the everyday encounters with the problems of the communities and people of different historical and social context whom he meets while preaching the gospel. Lectures. Preparation and participation in class – 10%; Book Review assignments – 70%; Final colloquium – 20%.
