The apostle Paul is one of Christianity’s most important figures. From the famous story of his conversion, to the stories of his missionary journeys, to his house arrest in Rome, the life of Paul, the letters he wrote, and the theology he articulated profoundly influenced the early history of Christianity and the trajectory of Christian theology through the centuries. As the author of a large portion of the New Testament and perhaps the most outspoken proponent of Christian theology in the early Church, Paul continues to exert a powerful influence in the lives of Christians today.
Theologically, Paul helped bridge the Old Covenant and the New, writing extensively on grace and the law. He articulated a defense of Christianity amid a Jewish worldview. Historically, Paul operated from within a Hellenistic cultural context. Culturally, Paul defended Christianity against its secular critics in Athens and Rome, and against its Jewish critics scattered throughout the Empire. He helped construct a framework in which the church could understand its core beliefs and relate to its cultural context.
The literature on Paul is vast. Generations of scholars have aimed to reconstruct Paul’s history, wrestled over the hermeneutical and interpretive challenges in his letters, and tried to reconcile his seemingly disparate theological positions. This massive collection assembles dozens of key works on Paul. It includes classic commentaries and historical studies by F. W. Farrar, James Stalker, William John Conybeare, Frederick Brooke Westcott, and others. It also includes contemporary monographs written at the cutting edge of Pauline scholarship, with contributions by Ralph P. Martin, Stanley Porter, Craig Evans, F. F. Bruce, and many others. At 35 volumes and over 11,000 pages, this is a massive compilation of some of the most important literature on Paul’s life, history, writings, and influence.
