This is a book that should be read by anyone working through the Pastoral Epistles and Pauline theology in general. The careful research of the author is evident. It represents a significant advance over the simplistic liberalism that rejects the Pastorals as having no validity or usefulness today. This reviewer disagrees with the underlying assumptions regarding Pauline authorship presented in this work, but finds its trajectories and argumentation both helpful and stimulating.
added by Christa_Josh | editMaster's Seminary Journal, Dennis M. Swanson (Sep 1, 2009)
This is a solid and instructive piece of work which provides a useful contribution to the question of how the early church sought to preserve and repristinate the theology of Paul. It is wise to the complexities of that process, and clear that the trajectory it has sought to follow, that reflected through the Pastorals, is but one of a number of possible trajectories.
added by Christa_Josh | editJournal of Theological Studies, James Carleton Paget (Apr 1, 2009)
The book comes into its own in mapping the PE in relation to the Apostolic and Ante-Nicene Fathers, and these sections will repay careful study and will undoubtedly open the way to fresh research on the place of the PE in the legacy of Paul.
added by Christa_Josh | editJournal for the Study of the New Testament, Lloyd K. Pietersen (Jan 1, 2009)
Aageson is to be commended for developing a new method, that of theological patterns, to investigate the Pastorals, Paul's legacy, and what happened to Paul after Paul.
added by Christa_Josh | editCatholic Biblical Quarterly, Robert J. Karris (Jan 1, 2009)
This is a book that I truly enjoyed reading, especially for its fresh approach and numerous insights. Particularly as a Roman Catholic, I hope that Aageson's short, focused reflection on Scripture and tradition receives wide circulation. All things considered, "kudos" is the word that best sums up my reaction to this gem of a book.
