Paul and the Politics of Difference
A Contextual Study of the Jewish-Gentile Difference in Galatians and Romans
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Jae Won Lee argues convincingly for the interaction between postcolonial studies and approaches to Paul 'Beyond the New Perspective,' demonstrating the theological significance of the overcoming of universalizing interpretations of Paul in an exemplary way in relation, but not confined to, Korean Christianity. Lee's study highlights the importance of the ongoing scholarly conversation at the intersection of diverse approaches in biblical interpretation for and beyond the academy."

"Unequivocally constructive, this exposition centers on Paul's resolution of Jewish-Gentile difference. Lee shapes an interpretive worldview creatively but critically from feminism, postmodernism, postcolonialism, minjung theology, and ancient meal practices. Her innovative reading of Galatians and Romans through this perspective produces a compelling challenge for equality with difference--a challenge to ponder to the utmost. This is a must for collateral reading for Paul and Jewish-Gentile difference, and for human life together."
--Robert L. Brawley, Albert G. McGaw Professor of New Testament emeritus, McCormick Theological Seminary, Chicago, IL
