Product Description

The Apostle Paul has long had his admirers and revilers. And contemporary Christians often harbor private misgivings about this prominent apostle. Paul sounds harsh, intolerant, misogynistic, and his gospel surely misconstrues the message of Jesus. "How is it," they want to ask, "that some Christians can speak so fondly of Paul?"

Anthony Thiselton is an unabashed admirer of Paul, a student of his letters and a devotee of his gospel. Over a range of issues, Thiselton cleans the lens and sharpens the focus to give us snapshots of Paul's life, mission and thought. Whatever your level of knowledge and experience of Paul, you will find The Living Paul informative and interesting, nuanced and inspiring. A portrait of Paul rendered in the deft strokes of a master.

Peer Academic Reviews

"In the hands of a master scholar and teacher, Paul's letters come alive for a wide readership. This is an outstanding, reliable guide to the great apostle's life and thought, the fruit of over 40 years of engagement with the thought of the intellectual giant among the first followers of Jesus."
—Graham Stanton
Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity Emeritus, University of Cambridge

"Drawing upon his lifetime of study, research and teaching about Paul and hermeneutics, Tony Thiselton brings it all together to provide this wide-ranging yet concise introduction to the apostle's life and work, as well as to the main areas of his thought and his theology. Masterful in its scope, it is greatly to be welcomed."
—The Rev'd Prof. Richard Burridge
F.K.C., Dean of King's College London, and professor of Biblical Interpretation

"Thiselton's richly synthetic yet immensely readable book provides a superb general introduction to St. Paul's life and writings. His masterful treatment of historical contexts and scholarly evaluations includes an unusual sensitivity to the interplay of Pauline criticism with the broader intellectual history of Mediterranean and western tradition, period by period. This culminates in a bracing excursus on the pertinence of postmodernist literary theories to the interpretative tradition of the Pauline corpus which is, by itself, worth the price of the book for a serious student."
—David Lyle Jeffrey
Distinguished Professor of Literature and the Humanities, Baylor University
