In this book, James Aageson likens interpretation to a conversation and uses Paul as a model for illustrating this. In Paul's case, interpretation is a conversation between two people, Paul and scripture. Aageson gives four case studies of Paul conversing with scripture: Paul's use of Abraham texts, his understanding of Israel, his use of the figure of Adam, and his seeing Christ as a figure by which all traditions are understood in new ways.

James W. Aageson is Professor of Biblical Studies and Chair of the Division of Arts and Humanities at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. He is the author of several books and articles, including Paul, the Pastoral Epistles, and the Early Church.
