Series Editor’s Preface
More than ever the horizons in biblical literature are being expanded beyond that which is immediately imagined; important new methodological, theological, and hermeneutical directions are being explored, often resulting in significant contribu- tions to the world of biblical scholarship. It is an exciting time for the academy as engagement in biblical studies continues to be heightened. This series seeks to make available to scholars and institutions, scholarship of a high order, and which will make a significant contribution to the ongoing bibli- cal discourse. This series includes established and innovative directions, covering general and particular areas in biblical study. For every volume considered for this series, we explore the question as to whether the study will push the horizons of biblical scholarship. The answer must be yes for inclusion. In this volume Tony Costa examines the role of worship in the context of Pauline letters and the Pauline communities. The importance of this work lies in the fact that it is a comprehensive exploration of the themes of Christian worship in relation to the risen Jesus Christ in Paul. Using an exegetical-theological meth- od, the author provides an extensive analysis of select Pauline pericopes that speak to Christian worship seeking to interpret and understand such from the social- cultural environment of Paul. I believe that this study will be of great benefit to the academy and the Church. The arguments and conclusions must be reckoned with. The horizon has been expanded. Hemchand Gossai Series Editor
