Spenser's Paul's Literary Style is a groundbreaking stylistics study of the Apostle Paul's varying style of written communication to different audiences. Using 2 Corinthians 11:16-12:13, Romans 8:9-39, and Philippians 3:2-4:13, she uncovers the performance of ten stylistic operations: sentence changes, complexity of the writing, adverbs and adverbial clauses, propositional reduction, logical diagrams, abstract versus concrete nouns, imagery, Leo Spitzer's philological circle, verb density, and variety of sentence length. In doing so she provides a rationale for and an introduction to the use of stylistics in New Testament studies. Through the author's thorough investigation of these distinctive stylistic changes she sheds new insight and explores depths of further understanding on these timeless texts.
