 About the Book 

For some of us, the apostle Paul is like a distant uncle. Weve heard hes pretty important. Weve read the good parts of his letters. But sometimes he comes across as prickly and unpredictable. For a mid-afternoon latte, wed prefer Jesus over Paul.MoreFor some of us, the apostle Paul is like a distant uncle. Weve heard hes pretty important. Weve read the good parts of his letters. But sometimes he comes across as prickly and unpredictable. For a mid-afternoon latte, wed prefer Jesus over Paul.But actually, this is the guy who, from Ephesus to Athens, was the talk of the marketplace and the raconteur of the Parthenon. Maybe its time to give Paul a break, let go of some stereotypes and try to get to know him on his own terms. If thats where you are, Rediscovering Paul is your guide. This is a book that helps us find Paul again holding fort in the marketplace of Corinth, working with a secretary in framing his letter to the Romans, or pastoring the messy emerging churches of Philippi and Thessalonica.Market/Audience College studentsSeminariansPauline scholarsFeatures and Benefits Written by proven teachers and scholarsOffers an introduction to cultural background and letter writingFeatures chapters on the context and theology of Pauls lettersProvides an overview of Pauls theologyIncludes text boxes discussing issues and relevance for todayIncludes a glossary of termsChapters tied in to Dictionary of Paul and His Letters
