Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0819181889, Paperback)

This book grapples with the conundrum of interpretation posed by 2 Corinthians 4:7-5:10, especially the identification of the mixed metaphor, "clothed with the building from heaven." The author argues that Paul's Adam theology adequately explains the problem. This work breaks new ground in a long-standing "crux interpretum" in Pauline literature by rooting 2 Cor. 4:7-5:21 in Genesis 1-3. Contents: 2 Corinthians 5:1-10: A Review of Scholarly Research; Judaism and the Restoration of Adam's Glory; 2 Corinthians 4:7-15: The Lost Glory of Adam Restored by the Righteous Suffering of Christ and Paul; 2 Corinthians 4:16-5:10: The Restoration of Adam's Glory Through Righteous Suffering and the "Already"/"Not Yet" Aspects of Paul's Eschatology; 2 Corinthians 5:11-21: The Restoration of Adam's Glory Through Christ's Righteous Suffering Continued and Concluded.
