Geoffrey Harris seeks to reconcile Paul the thinker and Paul the man of action. This student-friendly textbook provides clear information about research and writing on Paul in recent years, and shows how Paul's early life held important strands of thought which informed his later theology. Paul's conversion and his reflection upon its meaning led him to develop a 'resurrection theology' from which much else followed on. The life setting of Paul's churches and his mission strategy brings out many lessons and principles for church life and mission today.

Published as an SCM Core Text, Paul by Geoffrey Harris of the East Midlands Ministry Training Course, is a superb introduction to Paul, rooted both in scholarship and the practicalities of ministry, which seeks to draw an all-round picture of the Apostle, combining both Paul the theologian and Paul the pastor.
