Item description for The Corinthian Body by Dale B. Martin...
Overview In "The Corinthian Body," Dale B. Martin contends that in Paul's first letter to the Corinthians his various disagreements with the Corinthians were the result of a fundamental conflict over the ideological construction of the human body (and hence the church as the body of Christ). This led to differing opions on a variety of theological viewpoints-including the role of rhetoric and philosophy in a hierarchical society, the eating of meat sacrificed to idols, prostitution, sexual desire and marriage, and the resurrection of the body. Softcover, 300 pages

Enlightening work on the historical climate of Paul's day Jan 23, 2009
This is a book that was required for a class I took last year on the Pauline corpus. The book provides insight into why Paul said what he said and why others wanted to be associated with him as well as against him. Heirarchy and skin color were important markers as to how people were valued and treated in that day and time, issues that still exist for us in the USA.
