Overview

The apostle Paul makes clear the central truths of Christianity. But sometimes he leaves us puzzled. As Peter said so long ago, Paul's "letters contain some things that are hard to understand."

Is the law good? Is it better to be single or married? Is God really just? What wil happen to the Jews? Should women be allowed to teach? Seldom have the questions become easier over time.

Manfred Brauch, drawing on years of pastoral experience and biblical study, takes on forty-eight hard sayings of Paul and offers the kind of help we need. By supplying background and putting these sayings in the context of the whole of Paul's teaching, he helps us not only to understand them but to see their importance for Christian living today.
