^"This is a wonderfully clear and thorough guide. Schreiner draws on his decades of scholarship to paint a 'big picture' of how to read Paul's letters. At the same time, he breaks the reading process down into smaller steps, and he illustrates those steps with numerous examples. For students who want to move from guesswork and random dabbling to informed, life-changing engagement with the divinely inspired writings of the apostle Paul, there is no better starting place."
--Robert W. Yarbrough, professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, MO^
^"In a welcome update to a tried and trusted textbook, Tom Schreiner shows us how to find our way around Paul's world, letters, language, culture, and theology. Whether one is deciphering Paul's Greek grammar, learning how to follow his arguments, or studying Paul's unique vocabulary, Schreiner is a reliable guide to the novice and veteran alike. Seminary students will be forever grateful to Schreiner for giving them this book!"
--Michael F. Bird, lecturer in theology, Crossway College, Brisbane, Australia
^"The new, updated edition of Tom Schreiner's excellent little book will be a boon to those who want to be responsible interpreters of Scripture. Although it specifically addresses the interpretation of Paul's letters, its principles are appropriate to all biblical interpretation. Schreiner, himself a masterful exegete, writes with his typical clarity and with the conviction that these writings are the inspired word of God. Those who read and heed this practical handbook will be in a strong position to feed the flock of Christ."
--Donald A. Hagner, George Eldon Ladd Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary^
