The</tt>
<br><tt>Message and the Kingdom. (Minneapolis: Fortress Press, 2002) and
the</tt>
<br><tt>Introduction and the introductory essays to each of the four chapters
in</tt>
<br><tt>Paul and Empire.</tt>
<p><tt>The Seminar, to be carried out under the auspices of Corpus Paulinum
and</tt>
<br><tt>its managers,&nbsp; will begin on Monday, April 22nd, and will

<br><tt>subscription only basis (for instructions on subscribing, see below),</tt>
<br><tt>and all posts submitted by Seminar members will be and&nbsp; be
subject to</tt>
<br><tt>selection by the seminar's moderators.&nbsp; Posts selected as
best suited to</tt>
<br><tt>further the discussion will be answered by Professor Horsley on

<p><tt>The focus of the Seminar is the thesis set out by Professor Horsley
in</tt>
<br><tt>The Message and the Kingdom and Paul and Empire that Paul's message
of</tt>
<br><tt>the cross and his missionary activity stands counter to, and as
a</tt>
<br><tt>polemic against, Roman imperial power and its gospel of the Pax
Romana.</tt>

in</tt>
<br><tt>the Seminar is one's</tt>
<br><tt>familiarity with these works. Information on The Message and the
Kingdom</tt>
