"The contributors are first rate; the essays are concise, stimulating and informative; this is a very interesting and useful companion volume." ( Journal for the Study of The New Testament , 2012) "Despite the mountain of books on Paul, including some substantial single-authored overviews, there are, to my knowledge, no major, multi-author companions of the length and scope of this new addition to the Blackwell Companions series ... The book offers a wealth of material to inform and stimulate the study of Paul's impact on the history of theology ... The editor has assembled an international and high-quality team of expert contributors, whose essays are well written and well informed ... An important reference point for students of Paul -- and, equally, students of Paul's impact on the history of Christian theology -- for some time to come." Theology , 2012) "This is a handsome, important volume that will be of great value to most students of the New Testament and early Christianity ... Highly recommended: upper-division undergraduates and above." ( Choice , 2011) "This broad and handsome volume is arguably the most comprehensive introduction to Paul ever produced ... There is insight aplenty for every reader. Westerholm has assembled a stellar cast of scholars with a brief to elucidate the content and impact of Paul's message through history ... A very worth-while collection of mostly top-notch articles by a group of scholars at the heights of their powers ... These essays could set the agenda for Pauline studies in some areas for many years to come and all will offer every student of Paul -- expert and novice alike -- much food for thought and further reflection."
