A valuable collection of C. K. Barrett's writings on Paul, the summation of a lifetime's work by the pre-eminent New Testament scholar.This book contains a number of essays, some hitherto unpublished, on historical aspects of Paul's work. Sometimes Professor Barrett takes a broad view, often he looks sharply at important topics. Many of the themes are familiar, but Barrett always illuminates them from new angles, formulating fresh questions and approaches.A new and extensive introductory essay examines the relation of Paul to Christian leaders in Jerusalem.
'...They are not always easy to read, and certainly present one with food for thought, but they are worth the effort.' 'The range of essays in this book is astounding.'--Sanford Lakoff "Downside Review "
