The apostle Paul was a vital force in the development of Christianity. Paul's historical and religious context affects the theological interpretation of Paul's writings, no small issue in the whole of Christian theology. Recent years have seen much controversy about the apostle Paul, his religious and social context, and its effects on his theology. In the helpful Counterpoints format, four leading scholars present their views on the best framework for describing Paul's theological perspective, including his view of salvation, the significance of Christ, and his vision for the churches. Contributors and views include:
* Evangelical View: Thomas R. Schreiner
* Post-New Perspective View: Douglas Campbell
* Catholic View: Luke Timothy Johnson
* Jewish View: Mark D. Nanos.

Like other titles in the Counterpoints: Bible and Theology collection, Four Views on the Apostle Paul gives theology students the tools they need to draw informed conclusions on debated issues.

4 stars By Tikvah08, Aug 31 2015
Growing up in a particular Roman Catholic church, I always had a strange view of Paul as a superhuman, demi-god of sorts. His exploits were given special treatment; he was heralded as the New Testament hero just inches short of Jesus Himself. When coming to biblical faith in the gospel later in life, I could make no doubt Paul was a remarkable individual, but he was just like the rest of us. Gifted and able just as much, but available and responding to the Spirit's prompting. This book makes for a great work in focusing particularly on Paul as a person, from 4 distinctly different and sometimes contradictory views. Included are 4 views from the following positions: Reformed, Catholic, Post-New Perspective, Jewish.
