For some of us, the Apostle Paul is like a distant uncle. We’ve heard he’s pretty important. We’ve read the good parts of his letters. But sometimes he comes across as prickly and unpredictable. Not someone you’d like to hang out with at a coffee shop. He’d raise his voice, try to convert the barista, and we’d want to slink out the back door. For a mid-afternoon latte, we’d prefer Jesus over Paul.

But actually, this is the guy who, from Ephesus to Athens, was the talk of the marketplace and the raconteur of the Parthenon. Maybe it’s time to give Paul a break, let go of some stereotypes and try to get to know him on his own terms. If that’s where you are, Rediscovering Paul is your guide. This book helps us find Paul again—holding forth in the marketplace of Corinth, working with a secretary in framing his letter to the Romans, or pastoring the messy emerging churches of Philippi and Thessalonica.

Drawing on the best of contemporary scholarship, honed by teaching and conversing with today’s students, Rediscovering Paul is a textbook that rises above the rest.
