Item description for A Feminist Introduction to Paul by Sandra Hack Polaski...

Sandra Hack Polaski introduces readers to the letters and world of Paul, encouraging a critical appreciation of Paul and his writings that does not require a choice between commitment to the scriptures and integrity as a modern feminist. In conversation with the leading interpreters of Paul and considering possible responses to Paul-conformist, resistant, rejectionist, and transformational-Polaski forges her own theory of how to interpret Paul. She reads, emphasizes, and reinterprets overlooked, neglected, misintegrated, or differently interpreted Pauline texts, making visible the invisible and challenging the accepted readings. Polaski uncovers both the ideologies behind the text and the ideologies the text seeks to suppress. She traces the trajectories toward which the texts point even if Paul did not fully follow the trajectories to their logical end. Such a program leads Polaski to find God's New Creation as the operative center of Pauline thought.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Feminist Introduction to Paul?

pretty good  Aug 6, 2006
I think this is a reasonably good book if you don't want a terribly technical discussion on the role of women and how they are viewed in scripture. The author discusses controversial passages from Romans and the two Corinthians, even touching down a little bit on the issue of homosexuality, and does so very shrewdly. This is a good introduction to feminist commentary on Paul by a Baptist seminary professor who happens to be a feminist. You might also check out her commentary in the IVP Women's Bible Commentary.
