    Paul's Critique of Theocracy; A/Theocracy in Corinthians and Galatians by Odell-Scott, David

    London and New York; (2003): T & T Clark Internaitonal. Octavo. 187p. index., bibliography, references. A remarkable study that takes the Greco-Roman background from Plutarch and other writers and shows how Paul shows that instead of external (i.e., Roman) authority, the Church finds unity through understanding the death of Christ and its celebration in the Church. The author is remarkably frank on the role of mutuality in the sexual relationship of the husband and wife as opposed to the male dominance theme in both the Jewish and Roman culture. An essential study for any serious study of I Corinthians with the appropriate cognate passages in Galatians. Bount in blue cloth lettered in silver, spine lettering silver. A fine copy.
