How can we know today what was happening in the minds and hearts of Paul and the first Christians so long ago? By getting below the surface of Paul''s theology, the consistent key elements of early Christian experience are revealed in a way that throws light on the meaning of powerful religious experiences and movements both in the past and today. Illuminating for those who have never read a word on Paul yet disturbing and provocative for biblical scholars, this book tackles the topic of the religious experience of Paul and the first Christians. Lacking authentic knowledge of Paul''s liberating experience, generations of translators and interpreters have inevitably and sometimes clumsily obscured Paul''s meaning. In this book the scholarly accusation that Paul is incoherent is turned upside down to show how uncritically accepted ways of translating Paul mislead today''s reader and introduce a mystifying complexity into scholarship on Paul. Taking the reader step-by-step through a painstaking restoration of the meaning of Paul''s text, the colour and form of Paul''s original vision are revealed.
Timothy Ashworth is Lecturer in Biblical Studies at Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre, Birmingham, UK.
