This revised edition of John Ziesler's broad yet detailed overview of St Paul's thought and distinctive kind of Christianity is intended for a general readership, and is therefore of wider value than individual and more technical commentaries. Dr Ziesler's starting point is St Paul's view of Jesus Christ as marking the end of an era and the beginning of a new world and a new humanity. The concentration is on theology, but matters of authorship and dating are discussed briefly where relevant. A number of key passages from the Pauline letters are given a more extended treatment.
"One of the finest of the brief books on Paul and his theology. It combines digesta of scholarly judgments in a manner that a serious entry level student can understand. I am glad to have it in this revised edition."--Ronald Tyler, Pepperdine University"Superior. A must for introductory and higher level courses on Pauline literature."--Mary M. McGlone, Avila College"An excellent entry level text....Lucid and to the point."--Andrew L. Misto, Franciscan University"A clear concise presentation of the thought of Paul of Tarsus. It is accessible to students who are beginning New Testament studies....All in all, scintillating and satisfying."--Edgar Krentz, Lutheran School of Theology"A clear and succinct presentation of the background and theology of Paul."--The Bible Today
