The Politics of Heaven: Women, Gender, and Empire in the Study of Paul
Issues of empire and gender remain of vital interest among Paul's interpreters, as in wider publics, today. Joseph A. Marchal offers an accessible engagement with some of the more complicated theory put to use in Pauline studies, addressing feminist and postcolonial interpretation as well as recent scholarship on Paul and empire. Giving particular attention to aspects of Philippians as a case study, Marchal argues that only a sophisticated interpretation that combines analysis on all these axes can prove adequate to the complexity of Paul's context.
