About the Book

Robert E. Picirilli, teacher of college-level Pauline writing courses for twenty-five years, has combined the best features of the commentary approach, New Testament introduction, and other technical studies for a readable and comprehensive textbook on the life, times, and epistles of Paul the apostle. Study Paul against the backdrop of the Greco-Roman and Jewish cultures in which he was raised. Combine this with the knowledge of the ministry of Paul throughout his life, and you will see this great man of God in full perspective. Add to this an introduction and brief analysis of each Pauline epistle, and the result is a textbook appropriate for college-level course work. Paul the Apostle is a valuable resource as both college text and personal study tool. Additional reading lists and sidebars on pertinent topics make this one of the most useful studies of Paul available. - Back cover.
