The aim of the project is to develop one of the most important new methods in new testament scholarship, rhetorical criticism, and apply it to a central topic, the Theology of Paul.The method, called "derhetorization" seeks to intergrate the rhetorical, dynamic perspective into traditional "historical-critical" approaches.This for the project has produced several articles in international journals and one monograph.Another monograph is under construction.
