Reviews - What do customers think about Paul and the Salvation of the Individual (Biblical Interpretation Series)?

Complete Misrepresentation of the Context Group  Dec 20, 2006
Gary Burnett has done an exceptionally poor job of understanding the work of the Context Group and as a result badly caricatures their views. The most clear example is:


"So then, what are we to make of Malina's first century individual who, he contends, existed with no individual self-consciousness, was shaped and moulded entirely by the group of which he was embedded, and had no interest or consciousness of any, inner, psychological states and no warmth in his human relationships? Such a person would be a shell of a human being, a social drone incapable of the behaviour that makes us truly human. Here we recall Cohen's objections to anthropological approaches which effectively deny individuals their self-consciousness and exalt the cultural and social to a position of dominance over individual human beings. In Malina we have an extreme example of such an approach." (45)

Burnett has committed the classic error of all critics of the Context Group, thinking that they denied ALL thought of persons as individuals, when their teaching is rather that the group retained PRIORITY over the individual. They do not say NO individual self-consciousness, but rather that individual self-consciousness was given a lesser priority to the group.
 
Synopsis of book  Sep 9, 2002
This book proposes that there was a lively sense of the individual self in persons in the Hellenistic world of the urban centres in which Paul lived and ministered, whereby individualistic behaviour was not unknown and where individuals were not simply determined by their culture and the group of which they were a part. This is in contrast to many recent sociological approaches to the New Testament which emphasise the collective over the individual. Hence it is argued that the individual is a central feature of Paul's letter to the Romans.
This book challenges the very strong emphasis put upon the collective in recent approaches to Paul's letter to the Romans, especially by sociologically based NT research, but also within the wider body of Romans research. It suggests that it is possible to maintain that Paul was vitally interested in the salvation of the individual, without having to revert to traditional Lutheran interpretations of the text.
