What People Are Saying

Jeffrey A. Trumbower
This book is lucid and judicious. It's the most concise introduction to Paul I've seen, and it is excellent as a quick intro at the beginning of a course, preparing the students for further study of Paul's letters themselves.
—(Jeffrey A. Trumbower, St. Michael's College)
Daniel P. Efroymson
Written clearly, and the focus is on the most important issues. The 'participation' business is treated well.
—(David P. Efroymson, La Salle University)
J. Samuel Escobar
This short readable volume is packed with the wisdom and insights of a scholar whose contribution to the field of Pauline studies is respected around the world.
—(J. Samuel Escobar, Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary)

    Excellent discussion of Paul's thought and mission!

    I am neither a philosopher nor a theologian, merely an interested layman. I found this book to be incredibly insightful - both way beyond my rudimentary knowledge of the subject yet simultaneously easy enough to read and assimilate. I feel after reading this book that I at least have a real appreciation of Paul's significance to the church - especially the early church - and what the main issues of his preaching were, and, to an extent, how and why his epistles to different peoples (Corinthians, Romans, Galatians, etc) dealt with different topics in different ways. Much, much more than a "life of St Paul", this book will help illuminate for you how the church developed the way it did. Finally, the images used throughout the book (mostly reproductions of classical works) are tied to the text in exceptionally interesting ways, and by themselves add immensely to the book's appeal.
