Awesome! Very rich and thought provoking. Not only does Hays set forth and interpretation of how Paul read Scripture, using literary analysis, but he also asks the "so what?" question. Any thoughtful reader of Paul should give some time to pondering the questions posed by Hays in this volume. Besides the intellectually stimulating concepts posed, Hays also has a masterful use of the language, making academia enjoyable as well as insightful.
