Paul and the Stoics

Front Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, Jan 1, 2000 - Religion - 435 pages

This book seeks to do for the study of Paul and Stoicism what E. P. Sanders did for Paul and Judaism. Instead of making a brick-by-brick analysis, Troels Engberg Pedersen provides the first comprehensive building-to-building comparison of how the two religious/philosophical systems functioned. The book moves through the major letters of Paul (e.g., Philippians, Galatians, and Romans), carefully documenting Paul's indebtedness to Stoic thought.
