Samenvatting

The Practice of the Body of Christ begins a conversation between ''apocalyptic'' interpretations of the Apostle Paul and the contemporary revival in ''virtue ethics.'' It argues that the human actor's place in Pauline theology has long been captive to theological concerns foreign to Paul and that we can discern in Paul a classical account of human action that Alasdair MacIntyre's work helps to recover. Such an account of agency helps ground an apocalyptic reading of Paul by recovering the centrality of the church and its day-to-day Christic practices, specifically, but not exclusively, the Eucharist. To demonstrate this Miller first offers a critique of some contemporary accounts of agency in Paul in light of MacIntyre's work. Three exegetical chapters then establish a ''MacIntyrian'' rereading of central parts of the letter to the Romans. A concluding chapter offers theological syntheses and prospects for future research.

Recensie(s)

...this is a book that rightly presses for more ethical and ecclesiological engagement in apocalyptic readings of Paul....the book contributes in important ways to contemporary Pauline hermeneutics. -Alexandra R. Brown, Theology, Vol 118, No. 5, 2015 Those familiar with MacIntyre will appreciate the well-developed section on his reading of Augustine, not to mention the mature deconstruction of the modern moral tradition. ...For my own part, I find him persuasive. -Michael Lakey, Modern Believing (57.2), March 2016
