Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Paul and the Agon Motif: Traditional Athletic Imagery in the Pauline Literature contains a table of contents, a preface, and a list of abbreviations. The use of the athletic imagery in the thought of Paul is not only relatively frequent when compared with his use of other pictures and metaphors, but also stands in the service of singularly important motifs in his letters. The background of the diatribe's use of the Agon motif must also be sought in order to gain a fuller picture of the motive for its use in the diatribe.

Keywords: Agon motif; Pauline literature
