How is it possible that the apostle Paul calls one and the same group of Gentile readers Jews, Gentiles, and neither Jews nor Gentiles without skipping a beat? Joshua Garroway has a solution. Garroway sees Paul caught up in the ancient debate over Jewish identity. Convinced his baptized charges had become Jews, yet unable to describe that transformation without invoking and confirming standard notions of Jewishness, Paul constructed a hybrid Gentile-Jewish identity. This novel approach to Paul invites fresh interpretations of Paul's letters, particularly Romans, and allows Garroway to reimagine Paul's role in the historical development of Christianity.
