Exploring the Word of God: The Letters of Paul [NOOK Book]

Overview

“Exploring the Word of God” began in the mid 1990s. We were able to print a volume on the books of Moses, but the series was never continued, and the first volume has fallen out of print. However, we had a substantial amount of material written, and we added more in the intervening years. These materials have been edited and are on our website. We have also compiled our articles on Paul’s letters and are happy to make them available through print-on-demand publishing.

Overview

“Exploring the Word of God” began in the mid 1990s. We were able to print a volume on the books of Moses, but the series was never continued, and the first volume has fallen out of print. However, we had a substantial amount of material written, and we added more in the intervening years. These materials have been edited and are on our website. We have also compiled our articles on Paul’s letters and are happy to make them available through print-on-demand publishing.
Paul’s letters are a key part of Christian theology and teaching. They not only show that the foundation of salvation is the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, but also explain how salvation should affect the way we live with one another. One theme found throughout is the grace of God:
* by grace God sent Jesus to be our Savior
* by grace we are saved, not by any good works that we do
* by grace the Spirit works in us, transforming us to be more like Christ
* by grace we love one another
* by grace we will be resurrected with Christ and be given immortality with him.
Paul’s letters show a church leader driven by his love for Christ, and driven by his love for the people of Christ. There is warm pastoral concern, and a firm insistence on truth. There are parts that are hard to understand, some parts that are easy to misunderstand, and large sections in which the message is clear and strong. Although we do not have comments written for every chapter, we will proceed through the letters chapter by chapter for a richly rewarding walk with the apostle.

Meet the Author

I grew up in a small town in southern Illinois: Sparta. Our family of seven was religious but did not go to church - instead, we had a Bible study at home every week. I eventually began attending a church after I moved away, and then I went to a Bible college, and eventually a seminary. Now I work for Grace Communion International, and teach part-time at Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, California. My interests are the Gospels, the epistles and theology of Paul, and ethics.
