Bible, Culture, Society: Postgraduate Explorations. Selected Papers Presented at Postgraduate International Symposia Held at Evanđeoski teološki fakultet

 The essay collected in this volume are a selection of papers presented over the past three years at several symposia held at Evandeoski Teoloski Fakultet, Osijek, Croatia. The authors, a group of postgraduate students coming from various places from Eastern Europe, undertook topics of research that express contextual awareness and a desire to reflect relevantly on issues facing Church and society. Methodologically the collection restates the centrality of the Bible and the importance of responsible biblical interpretation. Also there is a stress on the importance of addressing the challenges of culture and society through theological reflection. As such, the works presented in this book will, hopefully, expand the readers’ awareness of the possibilities and necessity for undertaking theological research. In addition to being the co-editor of the book, Corneliu Constantineanu has also contributed to the collection with the following essays: “Introduction: The Word of God and a World of Cultures;” “The Isaianic Background of 2 Corinthians 5:11–7:1: A Substructure of the Social Dimension of Reconciliation;” “Paul’s Paradigm Shift and Reconciliation: A Kuhnian Exploration into Paul’s Theologizing.”Corneliu Constantineanu & Marcel V.
