In this volume, Conrad Gempf sympathizes with the fact that many Christians struggle with liking and understanding Paul, but explains that looking at Paul’s life from a new approach will provide more clarity. Gempf examines Galatians, 1 Corinthians, and Philemon to explore why people struggle with Paul’s writings, and how to approach the text in a way that changes the reader’s understanding of Paul’s letters and character. How to Like Paul Again shows how with a new approach and more background knowledge, readers can gain a better understanding of Paul’s genius.
