The Pauline Camp

For those of us who go nuts over the Pauline Epistles, I have fun news from breakfast this morning with Dr. Laurence Welbourn of United Theological Seminary. Apparently Dr. Welborn (who founded the Christ Church Soup Kitchen of New Haven in the late 70's with his wife, by the way) and crazy Dale Martin of Yale will soon complete a scholarly paperback series which explores Paul's situation in the political/social/economic millieu of ancient Rome. The series will reflect the first official collaboration of classical and theological scholars on St.Paul, and will be entitled "Differences in Comparison." I am excited about this. Look for it...
