About the Author

Matthew W. Bates is Assistant Professor of Theology at Quincy University. He lives in Quincy, Illinois.


[The Hermeneutics of the Apostolic Proclamation] is written at a scholarly level and should be considered by all engaged in a serious study of Pauline hermeneutics.

--James M. Howard, American Pathways University "Bulletin for Biblical Research"

Bates combines careful exegesis, theological acumen, Christian spirituality, and academic rigor--a rare sight in biblical studies. He also provides fresh insights into Paul's hermeneutical strategy.

--Matthew Y. Emerson, California Baptist University "Biblical Theology Bulletin"

Bates has made a valuable contribution to a topic within NT scholarship that many, I would presume, feel is currently overworked. Bates is well-versed in ancient Hellenistic rhetorical conventions and early Christian exegesis, and this enables him to situate Paul's scriptural interpretation in its historical and theological context.

--Joshua W. Jipp, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School "Themelios"

There is no doubt that Bates offers students of Paul's scriptural interpretation a major, programmatic demands serious consideration by anyone investigating biblical exegesis in early Christianity.

--Robert B. Foster, Madonna University "Review of Biblical Literature"

Bates's study is notable for its erudition, ranging widely, with an admirable degree of competency, across the fields of New Testament Studies, classics, patristics, linguistics, and literary criticism.

--Matthew V. Novenson, University of Edinburgh "Expository Times"
