Of all the first-century partisans of Christianity, only St. Paul left a substantial written legacy, Letters attributed to him comprise a quarter of the New Testament, and another twelfth of its pages--most of the Book of Acts--is devoted to a description of his career. St. Paul's letters, the most direct and earliest primary sources from the beginning of Christianity, are the focus of this volume. Wayne A. Meeks presents them here in the Revised Standard Edition, with an introduction and annotations. The letters are accompanied by a selection of critical writings in St. Paul and his influence by some of the foremost religious and philosophical minds of all time. Together, these writings form a thorough introduction to the man who has been called "the second founder of Christianity."
