"Talbert's work succeeds wonderfully in fulfilling the vision for the Paideia commentaries--the seasoned work of a scholar-teacher made accessible for theological students--and if subsequent volumes match the standard set here, this series will indeed be one to watch in coming days."--Timothy G. Gombis, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
Ephesians and Colossians is the first of eighteen volumes in the new Paideia commentary series. In this inaugural volume, leading New Testament scholar Charles Talbert distills interpretive insights for students in theology, biblical studies, and religion.
The Paideia series approaches each text in its final, canonical form, proceeding by sense units rather than word-by-word or verse-by-verse. Each sense unit is explored in three sections: (1) introductory matters, (2) tracing the train of thought, and (3) key hermeneutical and theological questions. The commentaries shed fresh light on the text while avoiding idiosyncratic readings and attend to theological meaning without presuming a specific theological stance in the reader. Aimed squarely at university and seminary students, this series is eminently useful for professors and preachers. It will also be of interest to theological libraries.
About the series:
Paideia commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by:
Attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs
Showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits
Commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book
Focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text
Making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format
Forthcoming volumes in the Paideia series include:
Mikeal C. Parsons on Acts
Frank J. Matera on Romans
Pheme Perkins on First Corinthians
Raymond F. Collins on Second Corinthians
James W. Thompson on Hebrews
