The Letters of Paul as Rituals of Worship

by John Paul Heil

ISBN: 9780227680070

“Heil reads through the corpus and looks for such passages and motifs that deal or are connected with aspects of a Christian gathering, above all, such formulas that express Paul’s sense for prayer and worship. […] This is a successful attempt at reading the letters of Paul with an eye on what must have been their first impact – their first reception. And that impact must have been impressive, in any case sufficient to have the communities preserve the letters, have them circulate, and at one point even have them receive non-Pauline copies”.

J. Verheyden, in Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses, Vol. 89, No.4, 2013
