This book is written in a very accessible style to students of different levels, and at the same time it is a deep exploration of what lies at the heart of Paul’s theological vision. Michael Gorman provides a sure and steady guide to Paul, contextualizing his life, letters, and theology every step of the way. Gorman’s ability to emphasize the stories of the churches underlying Paul’s letters—the story within each letter—is a particularly welcome feature of the book. This is the best textbook on Paul I have found.
—Jeffrey S. Siker, chair of the department of theological studies, Loyola Marymount University
This fine book is accessible and informed, insightful and engaging. With well-chosen emphases, Michael Gorman provides a comprehensive, clearly arranged discussion of Paul as apostle, pastoral theologian, and writer of very important letters.
—Warren Carter, professor, Brite Divinity School
