Customer Reviews For "The Living Paul"Write Your Own Review
A decent introduction to the Apostle Paul, and Pauline studies. Sometimes seems a bit bias toward the new perspective on Paul. This book covers such topics as justification, Paul and postmodernism, and Paul vs. Jesus (who was the founder of Christianity?). I would recommend you read other books alongside this book, and get a bigger picture of Pauline scholarship. Thiselton seems to stick up for N. T. Wright in this book, and having a broader understanding of the debates is useful! Thiselton quotes Scripture often, and less often quotes secondary sources. A lot of time as been spent on exegesis for this book.
