Virginia Wiles introduces Paul's theology by bridging the gaps of time and place between today's Western readers and the first-century Mediterranean apostle. Taking her cue from the idea that what may be familiar may not necessarily be understood, she shows how assuming knowledge of Paul's thought world and language leads to misunderstanding. 'Familiar' terms such as righteousness, sin, law and grace take on a new dimension under her guiding hand. 198 pages, from Hendrickson.
