This comprehensive introduction to Paul by a leading European scholar, proceeding on the basis of the rootedness of the apostle's letters in particular concrete circumstances, first carefully lays out what can be known of those circumstances on the basis of the available evidence, then interprets the letters in light of their life-setting en route to a comprehensive and coherent description of Paul's theology. Now available in a lucid translation by a respected American scholar who has adapted the bibliographical documentation for English-speaking students, Schnelle's introduction is sure to become a leading textbook for graduate students and seminarians and a major point of reference for their professors.
Paul's writings are centrally important not only for the establishment of the Christian faith but for the whole history of Western culture. The original German edition of Udo Schnelle's work has established itself as a leading introduction to Paul in Europe. Now in Eugene Boring's translation, and with his bibliographic revisions, it represents the state of the art in the English-speaking world. This comprehensive critical introduction combines historical and theological analysis. After essential methodological preliminaries, the first half of the book constructs Paul's biography: his pre-Christian life, his conversion, his missionary journeys, and the context of his writings. The second half is a synchronic exposition of the theological themes that run through his writings. Apostle Paul is an essential book for professors, students, clergy, and others with a scholarly interest in Paul.
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.
