Publisher's Description

What issues did Paul address in his letters? What can we know about his audience? Why is the authenticity of some of Paul's letters questioned? What was his distinctive message and how did he argue? Charles Puskas addresses these and other questions about each New Testament book written by or ascribed to the Apostle Paul in nine concise chapters including an overview of the letter genre and a chronology of Paul's life. In addition to helpful discussions on authorship, date, social setting, audience, and literary characteristics, Dr. Puskas investigates the genre and rhetorical arrangement of each book. He carefully explores issues and problems with consideration for alternative viewpoints. His approach is inductive, with special sensitivity to the beginning college student and seminarian who are entering for the first time the often perplexing realm of Pauline studies and New Testament criticism.

Author Bio

Charles B. Puskas has extensive experience in university and seminary teaching, academic publishing, and parish ministry. He is the author of The Conclusion of LukeActs (2009), An Introduction to the Gospels and Acts (with David Crump), and An Introduction to the New Testament (with C. Michael Robbins).
