From the Publisher“Paul in Ecstasy is highly original. It contains a compelling analysis of the prejudices against the themes of ecstasy, mysticism, enthusiasm, and charismatic experiences in mainstream scholarship and a very solid account of neurological research. The latter is by itself worth the price of the book.” – Robert Jewett, Guest Professor of New Testament at the University of Heidelberg and Part-time Professor of Biblical and Historical Studies at the University of Wales Lampeter
“Shantz’s methodical and disciplined application of insights from cognitive neuroscience to the interpretation of Paul’s ecstatic experiences is insightful, balanced, and thorough. It takes a deserved place among similar contemporary studies of Paul and other biblical personalities such as Enoch, Ezekiel, and John. Her lucid and elegant style makes the application of complex scientific concepts to the interpretation of Paul easily accessible and pleasurable to read even for those entirely unfamiliar with or skeptical of this approach.” – John J. Pilch, Georgetown University, Washington, D.C.
