This introduction traces the development from Jesus to Paul, his encounter with Christ on the road to Damascus, the theological and pastoral concerns expressed in his letters, the picture of Paul in Acts, his background, social world and legacy. Key themes are explored in relation to modern issues such as feminism (no longer male and female), race (no longer Jew or Greek) and liberation (no longer slave or free).;Theological doctrines such as Atonement, Christology and Ecclesiology are discussed in relation to the rest of the New Testament and modern concerns, and a summary is offered of the main interpretations of Paul current today.
"This study introduces its readers to the different aspects of the study of the apostle Paul. It aims primarily not to present its author's own interpretation of Paul, but to introduce students to the differing positions and methods developed by contemporary scholars in Pauline studies. By setting out these views, and the evidence on which they are based, it equips the reader to approach the study of Paul with an awareness of the range of current debate and a knowledge of the evidence and arguments they will encounter."--BOOK JACKET.
