Paul on Marriage and Celibacy: The Hellenistic Background of 1 Corinthians 7

By Will Deming | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

IN ORIGIN THIS BOOK was my doctoral dissertation, which was accepted by the University of Chicago Divinity School in August of 1991. For having reached this stage in my career as a teacher and scholar I am indebted to many people, but first of all to my parents, to whom this book is dedicated: to my mother, who taught me patience and curiosity, and to my father, who taught me to think logically and muster a good argument. Throughout the many years of my graduate education they generously supplied me with both financial support and encouragement, two of a scholar's most precious resources.

I am also indebted to my dissertation adviser Hans Dieter Betz for his exacting reading and rereading of this work, and to Elizabeth Asmis for her thoughtful criticisms of my Greek translations.

Beyond this I wish to express my gratitude to the many other teachers I have had at the University of Chicago and at Göttingen University in Germany. Among these are Wendy Doniger and Frank Reynolds, who initiated me into the study of symbolism and comparative religious ethics; the late David Wilmot, who imparted to me, and to all his students, a passion for reading Greek; and Hartmut Stegemann, Robert Hanhart, and Berndt Schaller, under whom I had the privilege of studying Hellenistic Judaism.

Finally, a special thanks is due to my wife, Lauren Wellford Deming, for reading through the manuscript as a nonspecialist, offering suggestions regarding style and clarity, and to my good friend the Reverend Owen Guy for providing me with a quiet place to work while I wrote the last two chapters.
