This revised edition of John Ziesler's broad yet detailed overview of St Paul's thought and distinctive kind of Christianity is intended for a general readership, and is therefore of wider value than individual and more technical commentaries. Dr Ziesler's starting point is St Paul's view of Jesus Christ as marking the end of an era and the beginning of a new world and a new humanity. The concentration is on theology, but matters of authorship and dating are discussed briefly where relevant. A number of key passages from the Pauline letters are given a more extended treatment.

Industry Reviews

`It provides an excellent introduction to Pauline theology for students embarking on the topic. It is lucidly written with a balanced overall perspective. It is both a readable and a reiable guide.' Dr A T Lincoln, University of Sheffield `This book is an excellent introduction to Paul, steering skilfully through the minefields of current controversy among his interpreters, a model of lucidity and good sense.' Professor David Catchpole, University of Exeter `An admirably clear and comprehensive study of Paul's theology - ideal for students begging to explore this subject.' J Barclay, University of Glasgow 'an introduction assuming no awareness of the key discussion points ... the revised and up-dated version of Zieslet's balanced and comprehensive treatment in the Oxford Bible Series is to be welcomed for its combination of richness and brevity.' Frances M. Young, University of Birmingham, Scottish Journal of Theology
