This is the sixth edition of the classic textbook that has been introducing Paul and his writing to seminary and undergraduate students for over forty years. Roetzel provides a comprehensive look at Paul in light of recent scholarship and theological understandings of Paul. This new edition includes four brand-new sections on the following: the chronology of Paul's letters; Paul's concept of "law" in the context of messianic expectation; the religious and political contexts in which Paul's letters were written; and Jewish understandings of Gentiles and Paul's mission to include them among the elect of God. This long-established textbook is the ideal choice for any student of Paul.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"For forty years Cal Roetzel has been an honest broker of the complex, conflictual, and evolving dynamic that existed between Paul, his beliefs, and his churches. Roetzel wrote this book to help his undergraduate students make sense of Paul's writings, but its reach is much broader. Not only undergraduates but seminarians, pastors, and professors will gain a deeper appreciation of the apostle Paul's radical and deft 'theologizing' through Roetzel's carefully crafted book."
—Steven J. Kraftchick, Professor of the Practice of New Testament Interpretation, Candler School of Theology, Emory University

"Calvin Roetzel's book, The Letters of Paul, has achieved near-classic status in the field. It is a pleasure, therefore, to see it being reissued in yet another revision from Roetzel's indefatigable pen. Highly recommended."
—Daniel Boyarin, Hermann P. and Sophia Taubman Professor of Talmudic Culture, University of California, Berkeley
