Description

THIS COMPREHENSIVE, WIDELY USED TEXT by Michael Gorman presents a theologically focused, historically grounded interpretation of the apostle Paul and raises significant questions for engaging Paul today. After providing substantial background information on Paul's world, career, letters, gospel, spirituality, and theology, Gorman covers in full detail each of the thirteen Pauline epistles. Enhancing the text are questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter as well as numerous photos, maps, and tables throughout.

The new introduction in this second edition helpfully situates the book within current approaches to Paul. Gorman also brings the conversation up-to-date with major recent developments in Pauline studies and devotes greater attention to themes of participation, transformation, resurrection, justice, and peace.

Review quote

N. T. Wright
University of St. Andrews
"Michael Gorman enviably combines simplicity of presentation with profound originality. The present work, enhanced in this new edition, is simultaneously an accessible textbook and an exposition of challenging new ideas which all Pauline scholars must take seriously. A book to draw in the beginner and to compel the expert into fresh reflection."

Douglas A. Campbell
Duke Divinity School
"Gorman's learned, sustained, inclusive advocacy of participation as the center of Paul's gospel is one of the key features of the modern scholarly landscape. This second edition of his balanced yet probing introduction to Paul's thought is therefore profoundly welcome."

Michael F. Bird
Ridley College, Melbourne
"The best introduction to Paul and his letters just got better!"

Frank J. Matera
Catholic University of America
"I have used Michael Gorman's introduction to Paul with both undergraduate and graduate students. In my experience it is the best available introduction to Paul and his letters. Theological as well as historical and literary in its approach, it introduces students to what they need to know about Paul and his letters. The appearance of this revised and updated edition is good news for all who love and teach Paul."

Susan Eastman
Duke Divinity School
"In this accessible book written for a wide audience, Gorman charts a journey to the transformative heart of Paul's gospel: the crucified and resurrected Messiah.""
