In this accessible book, Anthony Thiselton introduces the apostle Paul, sometimes described as the founder of Christianity, to students and the general reader. Throughout Christian history Paul has been both revered and maligned. Many of his teachings, for instance on women, are troublesome and controversial to today's reader and have led some to ask how can Paul possibly be relevant to today? Thiselton examines Paul's teachings afresh. He shows, for example, that Paul was not a misogynist but that he believed in reciprocity and mutuality between men and women and in sexual relationships. Paul had much to say about the everyday things which concern us, including vocation, giving, power and Christian unity.
