Description: Covering the entire Pauline corpus the reader finds a man who was adept at persuasive arguments and providing theological answers to real and, often, thorny congregational issues. Readers will have a keen understanding of Paulís place in the early church, the relationship between church and synagogue, and the relationship between the teaching of Paul and that of Jesus. These discussions set Paul firmly within the church that existed before he joined, finding that he became an adherent to much that preceded him.
Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Deutero-Pauline Epistles, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches
