Item description for Paul and the Competing Mission in Corinth (Library Of Pauline Studies) by Michael D. Goulder...
Overview Goulder collects new evidence for F.C. Baur's hypothesis of two rival missionary groups in the early church---one headed by Paul and the other by representatives sent out from the pillars of the Jerusalem church, James and Peter. He fine-tunes his findings most fully in the Corinthian correspondence.

An Excellent Resource Nov 22, 2003
This small volume is an excellent resource for scripture study. It gives a good background to some of the cultural values and practices of the ancient world and how understanding these cultural values can help us as we interpret scripture today. The values discussed in the book are those that were held by the ancient Jewish people, as well as the values of their neighbors, particularly the Greeks and the Romans. There are many topics in the book which are arranged alphabetically and related subjects are crossed referenced. Many of the topics include bibliographies so that a reader can do further research if he/she wishes. The book contains a scriptural index which for quick reference, always a help for those involved in preaching.
The book is edited by noted scripture scholars John J. Pilch and Bruce J. Malina. Many of the contributors are among the best known names in biblical scholarship. The articles themselves are well written and most are easy to read. The book can be helpful for people involved in preaching, but will probably be most helpful for those who conduct scripture classes who wish to explore topics in a deeper manner.
Bridging the Gap Mar 24, 2000
Both Malina and Pilch provide a useful tool for students and scholars alike. Bridging the gap of culture and time for modern biblical readers is a daunting task and this text helps the modern reader to gain clearer understandings of the Biblical world. A reference work that is a must have for any serious reader of the Bible.
