"Citizenship provides a wonderful introduction to social and political issues in the Pauline corpus." -- Mark Reasoner, author of Romans in Full Circle: A History of Interpretation

"Zerbe explores Paul’s thought with a clear and sharp eye, looking for what “citizenship” looks like for members of “Messiah’s global politics.” He succeeds brilliantly in “un-domesticating” Paul, only to reintroduce the prophetic envoy of the Messiah to those struggling to be loyal to Jesus within a world of power and violence." -- Thomas Yoder Neufeld, author of Killing Enmity: Violence and the New Testament

"By organizing these essays around aspects of “citizenship,” Zerbe provides the most nuanced and compelling description we have yet seen of the political dimensions of the apostle’s thought and praxis. This welcome volume deserves the close attention of every interpreter of Paul." -- Neil Elliott, author of The Arrogance of Nations: Reading Romans in the Shadow of Empire
