Product Description

He's a compelling figure---so why do pastors often choose to preach topics other than Paul? Perhaps it's the size and complexity of the Pauline corpus. Writing with imagination and understanding, Braxton takes a spiritual and historical approach in examining the original texts, helping contemporary readers better comprehend Paul's message and effectively preach from his letters. 192 pages, softcover from Abingdon.

Publisher's Description

Helpful and insightful strategies for preaching from the writings of Paul.

Few biblical figures are more compelling to preachers than the apostle Paul. The story of his dramatic conversion on the road to Damascus is a favorite example of the way that God turns lives around. His writings contain the earliest witness we have to the Christian gospel. His message of God's offer of grace in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is deeply appealing. So why is it that when it comes time to choose a text for this Sunday's sermon, preachers so often choose something other than Paul? When Brad Braxton asked himself that question, he realized that preachers are often daunted by the size and complexity of the Pauline corpus.

Drawing on his expertise as a New Testament scholar and homiletics professor, as well as on his experience as a pastor, Braxton offers the reader tools with which to wrestle more effectively with the complex, yet essential, message of Paul. Eschewing either a solely historical approach or a completely spiritual one, the author brings the two together to explore the meaning of Paul's message in its original context, as well as its contemporary application. Written with imagination and depth of understanding, this book is for anyone who wishes to know Paul better and to preach from his letters more effectively.
