PAUL AS A LETTER WRITER A NEW PUBLICATION ON PAULINE LETTERS IN THEIR LITERARY SETTING

Abel de Villiers

Abstract


This article discusses Stirewalt’s new publication (2003) on Paul as a letter writer
in the light of research on letters in New Testament Studies. After an introductory
discussion of pioneering work by Deissmann, trends in twentieth century research
on letter writing are analysed as framework for a discussion of the work of
Stirewalt. This is followed by reflection on some seminal issues raised by this work,
like practicalities of letter writing, comparative methods, missiological issues, and
spirituality.
