Paul's writings are centrally important not only for the establishment of the Christian faith but also for the whole history of Western culture. Senior New Testament scholar Udo Schnelle offers a comprehensive introduction to the life and thought of Paul that combines historical and theological analysis. The work was translated into clear, fluent English from the original German--with additional English-language bibliographical reference materials--by leading American scholar M. Eugene Boring. First released in hardcover to strong acclaim, the book is now available in paperback. It is essential reading for professors, students, clergy, and others with a scholarly interest in Paul.

He is the author of numerous works, including History and Theology of the New Testament Writings, translated and revised by M. Eugene Boring. M. Eugene Boring (Ph.D., Vanderbilt University) was the I. Wylie and Elizabeth M. Briscoe Professor of New Testament at Brite Divinity School (now retired). He is the author of several books, including the Interpretation commentary on Revelation and (with Fred Craddock) The People's New Testament Commentary.
