|Summary:|| "A sparkling introduction to the key areas of debate in contemporary Pauline studies, with critical assessments of all the major contributions over the past century. This engaging companion volume to N. T. Wright's Paul and the Faithfulness of God is essential reading for all with a serious interest in Paul, the interpretation of his letters, his appropriation by subsequent thinkers, and his continuing significance today. In the course of this masterly survey Wright asks searching questions of all of the major contributions to Pauline studies since the early twentieth century."--Publisher's website.
