Product Description

As even Peter observed, Paul's letters ''contain some things that are hard to understand.'' Brauch tackles forty-eight of them, such as ''Hand this man over to Satan,'' and ''I do not permit a woman to teach.'' By supplying background information and by putting each passage in the context of the whole of Paul's teaching, Brauch helps you understand the importance of Paul's sayings for Christian life today. Paper, 216 pages, from InterVarsity.

Publisher's Description

The apostle Paul makes clear the central truths of Christianity. But sometimes he leaves us puzzled. As Peter said so long ago, Paul's "letters contain some things that are hard to understand." Is the law good? Is it better to be single or married? Is God really just? What wil happen to the Jews? Should women be allowed to teach? Seldom have the questions become easier over time. Manfred Brauch, drawing on years of pastoral experience and biblical study, takes on forty-eight hard sayings of Paul and offers the kind of help we need. By supplying background and putting these sayings in the context of the whole of Paul's teaching, he helps us not only to understand them but to see their importance for Christian living today.

    I highly recommend Brauch's work as being accessible, scholarly, and helpful. The same material (with a few additional comments) has also been incorporated into the one-volume work called "Hard Sayings of the Bible." [The larger volume just mentioned, is co-authored with Kaiser, Davids, and Bruce.] Brauch is not as well known as these other three authors, but his contribution is certainly up to their standard - which is saying quite a bit.
