Item description for Onesimus Our Brother: Reading Religion, Race, and Slavery in Philemon (Paul in Critical Contexts) by Matthew V. Johnson, James A. Noel & Demetrius K. Williams...
Overview Philemon is as important a letter from an African American perspective as Romans or Galatians has proven to be in Eurocentric interpretation. Here the editors gather critical essays by a constellation of African American and other scholars, highlighting the latest in interpretive methods, troubling scholarly waters and interacting with the legacies of Hegel, Freud, Habermas, Ricoeur, and James C. Scott as well as the historical experience of African American communities. Onesimus Our Brother opens surprising new vistas on Paul's shortest and, in some ways, most enigmatic letter.
