Quick Overview:

This book considers Paul's life based upon Scripture and other historical sources, and also discusses his theology and relevance for today. A bibliography and index are included.
From the dramatic events recorded in Acts and the various teachings found in the Epistles of Paul, Richard Longenecker traces the history and the theology of the 'apostle to the Gentiles.' Educated under Gamaliel, who was one of the greatest rabbis of the first century, Paul was thoroughly familiar with both the Old Testament and Jewish tradition. At first a persecutor of the church, he became a builder of churches. This book describes the dramatic change. Paul's theology is discovered in his writings. It developed as there was need for instruction and it is therefore a living theology. It grew as his ministry grew, and his ministry was almost as broad as the world of his day. The author points out that Paul's life was centered in one unalterable purpose: to present the divine plan of redemption in Christ. In fulfilling this purpose, Paul wrote on various issues of Christian living and carefully refuted errors. These issues and refutations all find a place in Dr. Longenecker's discussion
