Major Book Review: Laura Nasrallah, Archaeology and the Letters of Paul (Oxford University Press)

When: June 9, 2022, 3:30 pm - Thursday

Where: Ezell 301

Session 5

Session Abstract

In this important book, Laura Nasrallah reconstructs aspects of the social, economic, and religious contexts in which the Apostle Paul established churches. A crucial component of her work is attention to details brought to light by archaeology. In this session, an archaeologist (Robinson) and a Pauline scholar (Wright) engage in a dialog with Nasrallah about the book.
