About this book

Offering new readings of major eary modern English poets such as Spenser, Milton and Donne, Kneidel counters the trend among literary critics to associate early modern religion with Pauline inwardness and self-formation by showing how these writers took Saint Paul as a model of rhetorical skill and political acumen.

Reviews

'[-] will be of interest to readers with a focused interest in Pauline studies. It will also have an audience with those interested in religious themes and ideas found in literature. I commend Kneidel's book to both groups.' - Michael K Jones, United Church of Canada, Theological Book Review
