This book presents an innovative challenge to the traditional reading of Paul. Troels Engberg-Pedersen argues that the usual, mainly cognitive and metaphorical ways of understanding central Pauline concepts must be supplemented by a literal understanding that directly reflects Paul's materialist cosmology.

Born in 1948, Troels Engberg-Pedersen was educated in classics and philosophy (Copenhagen and Oxford). He has obtained two doctoral degrees, one in philosophy on Aristotle's Ethics (1983) and one in theology on Paul and Stoicism (2000). His fields of expertise cover the ancient world with a special focus on ancient philosophy and early Christianity. He has lectured widely in Europe and the United States.
