Paul and His Life-Transforming Theology: A Concise Introduction
Mohrlang, Roger

Eugene, Oreg.: Wipf and Stock, 2013 pp. xii + 170. $21.00


Here is a concise, inviting introduction to the greatest of the early Christian missionaries, the Apostle Paul—his life, his letters, his thinking—and the life-transforming gospel he proclaimed.

Readers will find this book academically stimulating, theologically rich, and personally challenging. It highlights the ways Paul's life and thinking differ from—and challenge—the life and thinking of Christians today.

Written in nontechnical language for both Christian students and general Christian readers, this book—the result of a lifetime of studying and teaching Paul's letters—will be helpful to all students and teachers of the Bible who want a deeper understanding of Paul, his theology, and the implications of his powerful letters for Christians today.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Acts, Pauline Epistles, Deutero-Pauline Epistles, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, Literary Approaches, Theological Approaches
