    This book, "Synopsis of the Pauline Letters in Greek and English", is an outstanding and incredibly useful reference work. The hours it will save for just about anyone who studies the Bible: Scholars. Pastors. Students. Even the well read Christian.

    Especially helpful for study of parallel passages, or comparative studies, in Paul's letters. It contains the letters whose authorship is uncontested (Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Philipians, 1 Thessalonians, Philemon), and those whose author is debated by some (Ephesians, Colosians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 & 2 Timothy & Titus).

    It also includes relevant passages in the Book of Acts that portray his teaching and ministry. This is a really nice feature that can give a wider scope of Paul through Luke's writings.

    The Greek text is that of the Nestle-Aland 27th edition.

    The English text is that of the "New Revised Standard Version" (most widely used translation in Collage and University, in the English speaking world.

    There are 6 subheadings:

    Epistolary Structure

    Epistolary Forms

    Literary Forms

    Themes (by far the largest section)

    Key Events

    Co-workers

    Under these there are a total 177 studies (a random selection):

    1. Salutation

    7. Signature

    11. Apostolic Parousia

    15. Vice List

    22. Proposed Hymn Fragments

    24. Idolatry and Dehmanization

    45. The Temple of God

    64. The Mystery of Gentile Inclusion

    70. Belonging to Christ

    93. The Glory to be Revealed

    116. Exhortation to Unity

    149. Hymns and Psalms

    165. Paul's Meeting with the Apostles in Jerusalem

    171. Paul's Co-worker Apollos

    177. Paul's Co-worker Aristarchus

    There is even a Glossary in the back of a number of words & phrases to assist those who, like me, are laity and have little or no formal schooling in a Bible College or Seminary.

    Anyone studying Paul and his letters, teaching about Paul, or even teaching through a particular letter of Paul's, can use this book.

    It is not necessarily for beginners, even though they could put it to good use in a number of ways; to put together a devotion or teaching on a particular topic Paul wrote about (remembering it only covers Paul's teaching on the topic or issue- an important fact to remember). Or to see how Paul usually opens his letters. What he taught on a number of issues.

    If you have the book "Synopsis of the Four Gospels" edited by Kurt Aland & published by United Bible Societies (available in NT Greek, Greek & English and just in English), you are pretty well set for years of productive study and teaching.
