As a professor of rhetoric at the University of Naples, Vico had a deep investment in the explanatory power of classical rhetorical thought, especially that of Aristotle, Cicero, and Quintilian. Yet as a historian of the failure of Naples as a self-determining political community, he had no illusions about the possibility or worth of democratic and republican systems of government in the post-classical world. As Marshall demonstrates, by jettisoning the assumption that rhetoric only illuminates direct, face-to-face interactions between orator and auditor, Vico reinvented rhetoric for a modern world in which the Greek polis and the Roman res publica are no longer paradigmatic for political thought.

But is that all there is to it? What made it so compelling that the Apostle Paul would give up everything, enduring hardships and deprivation to preach good news? David deSilva argues that some Christians have unintentionally reduced the gospel to a message Paul would hardly recognize.

During the debate between New Perspective, Old Perspective, and everything else about Paul's intellectual origin, what may get lost is Paul's goal of the Gospel.
The goal of Transformation: The Heart of Paul's Gospel is simple: Indeed, the indwelling of the Spirit is what makes up the idea of transformation. The book is divided into four chapters. The first chapter is deSilva's case for a "broader understanding of Paul's Gospel of Transformation.
He points to several Christian traditions that highlight one over the other. He posits that Paul would be troubled at the separation and a creation of "an order of salvation. He argues five points against such a false separation pg 10 , all of which sound Wesleyan if I may be so biased.
Indeed, deSilva suggests an ongoing justification, from the initial acquittal to the "final justification. Regardless of my bias, the thesis is simple: There is no momentary act of salvation, but an ongoing changing of the person into the new creation, and thus, transformation. For the rest of chapter 1, deSilva lays out well the reasons why his five points are sound, calling on Scripture and Reason scholarship to aid him.
Psychoanalysis and Management: The Transformation
He explores the "why" of transformation i. Chapter 2 turns to explore what transformation means to the individual and to the individual's freedom within Christ. He begins, again, but setting the initial act of justification within the framework of the entire Christian journey. Paul simply does not spend a lot of time detailing this theological point, but rather spends a majority of his time instructing the Church what this means and how this looks how transformation looks in the body and the body made up of individuals.
In chapter 3, deSilva explores the community's transformation as individuals who are opposed to one another in life become conformed to a unified body. Yes, reconciliation is a part of the transformation which is the heart of Paul's message at least according to deSilva.
