Description - Paul in Israel's Story by John L. Meech

In this book, John Meech reflects on St. Paul's construal of Christian identity in light of what has become known as the 'new paradigm' in Pauline studies, which stresses the communal aspects of Paul's thought and his narrative understanding of the self. Then he offers a pivotal analysis of Rudolph Bultmann's phenomenology of the self and its impact on his demythologizing interpretation of Paul's writings. Meech also engages Paul Ricoeur's late work Oneself as Another, as a guide to the postmodern problem of selfhood.
