The Blackwell Companion to Paul presents a distinctive dual focus approach that encompasses both the historical Paul and the history of Paul's influence. In doing so, expert contributors successfully address the interests of students of early Christianity and those of Christian theology.
Offers a complete overview of the life, writings and legacy of one of the key figures of Christianity. The essays compass the major themes of Paul's life and work, as well as his impact through the centuries on theology, Church teaching, social beliefs, art, literature, and contemporary intellectual thought.
Edited by one of the leading figures in the field of Pauline Studies. The contributors include a range of world-renowned academics.
A great in depth review of Paul and his impact
This book is approx 40 essays on St Paul and his writing, ranging from historical analysis (when his letters were written, one paul or multiple?), textual analysis (are all letter attributed to him by him), and analysis of others interacting with his works )different views on what his writings mean and how he has been viewed throughout history, looking at how Paul was treated by early church fathers, later writers etc). Narration was fine but nothing great. The work itself was very interesting. At least to me.
But as I'm only the 5th person to give it a rating on the site in the 3 years since it's release I don't think it is for everyone.
