Paul’s letters have fascinated and challenged most every reader of the Bible. As a result, many general introductions and specific studies on Paul are available, but none are like this volume. It provides over 100 charts to explore the apostle’s background, life and ministry, letters, and theology. The charts clearly present historical and modern analysis, research, comparisons, and insights into Pauline literature.

Comments on the charts and discussions of significant theories—with leads for further exploration-are offered together with an extensive bibliography that includes references to past and current Pauline scholarship. Interested Bible readers as well as students of Paul’s life, letters, and theology will find plenty of material to deepen their understanding. Teachers will find the charts to be a valuable teaching resource. This book is an excellent supplement to any general introduction or specific study on Paul.

For more great charts on books of the Bible, see the Kregel Charts of the Bible and Theology (5 vols.).

Top Highlights

“Emperors since Augustus were often called ‘lord’ and ‘savior’ (see Rom. 1:4; 4:24; 16:2; Phil. 2:11; 3:20)” (Page 15)

“Paul converted during the reign of Caligula (Acts 9)” (Page 15)

“Tiberius banished all Jews from Rome (A.J. 18.83)” (Page 15)

“a righteousness from God that is in fact based on Christ’s faithfulness.” (Page 169)

“An edict by Augustus in 12 bc guaranteed that Jews could send money to Jerusalem (see 2 Cor. 8–9; Rom. 15:25–31)” (Page 15)

This book provides an incredible number of charts—often quite detailed—on virtually every dimension of Paul imaginable. There are the usual charts that we have come to expect regarding dates and places, but Kierspel has provided a whole new level of information in various other charts on theology, comparisons of Paul to others, and a variety of contextual matters. Students and scholars will also find at the end of the book detailed comments and a very useful bibliography. I can’t imagine students not finding this a helpful resource.

—Stanley Porter, president and professor of New Testament, McMaster Divinity College

This useful contribution by Lars Kierspel provides us with a treasure trove of information on Paul’s world, life and ministry, churches, letters, and thought. . . . Especially valuable are his treatments of topics of particular current interest and scholarly debate, such as the role of women in Paul’s churches, the meaning of his phrase ‘faith (of) Christ,’ and the ‘new perspective’ on Paul, to mention a few. Whether student, pastor, or teacher, anyone working in Paul will find this a valuable reference tool.

—John Polhill, senior professor, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

A very useful resource text for a course on Paul. Each chart is laid out in a way accessible even to undergraduate students in an intro course; yet, other charts have the types of technical information helpful to graduate students, such as a list of (Greek) hapaxes or anacolutha. This is the type of book students like to keep. This will be a required secondary text in my next course on Paul!

—Randolph E. Richards, dean, Palm Beach Atlantic University School of Ministry
