About-

The catastrophes of the twentieth century have decisively broken the grip of Aristotle's fixed universe on our minds. “Society” is no longer the logical category of statecraft that is to determine our lives. The glorious horrors of fascism discredited the survival of the fittest, upstaged even by the compulsory class equality of the Soviets. Instead we now appeal to “culture” and mutual “communication” as we hope to grow together in response to each other. The universe itself at last is open-ended. Particle physics and the genetic code ensure diversity for us all. Our individual gifts will reveal our identity and our mission in life. We are indeed personally answerable for the choices we make. The twenty-first century’s great leap forward is Jerusalem’s long foreshadowed answer to Athens. Not logic but experiment has been the mainspring that has unlocked it. The transformed life of the apostle Paul in Christ first experienced the developmental prospect that has inspired the cultural reformation of our time. 

Endorsements & Reviews-

“The work of Edwin Judge has been an inspiration and an education to generations of students of early Christianity. His unrivaled classical knowledge and insight has again and again shed a flood of light on the early churches and what Paul was saying to them. These essays will do the same again and enable all of us to profit from Professor Judge's lifelong labors.”

—N. T. Wright, University of St Andrews



“More thoughtful and thought-provoking essays by the antipodean master of the ancient world, who is so good at showing its relevance for ours. Great discussion starters!”

—Larry W. Hurtado, University of Edinburgh



“Edwin Judge’s Paul and the Conflict of Cultures faces without flinching the forces that define our present moment in the history of the West: technological change, mass migration, class conflict, and loss of identity. Judge diagnoses the cause of the crisis we are now experiencing: a profound conflict between two different views of the world—the one emanating from Athens, the other from Jerusalem. . . . It is doubtful whether any other historian alive today could have produced such a work, with such penetrating, mature, and breathtaking insights into the complexities of our cultural traditions, animated by a sincere concern for the danger that hangs over the present.”

—L. L. Welborn, Fordham University and Macquarie University
