About-

Here is a concise, inviting introduction to the greatest of the early Christian missionaries, the Apostle Paul--his life, his letters, his thinking--and the life-transforming gospel he proclaimed.

Readers will find this book academically stimulating, theologically rich, and personally challenging. It highlights the ways Paul's life and thinking differ from--and challenge--the life and thinking of Christians today.

Written in nontechnical language for both Christian students and general Christian readers, this book--the result of a lifetime of studying and teaching Paul's letters--will be helpful to all students and teachers of the Bible who want a deeper understanding of Paul, his theology, and the implications of his powerful letters for Christians today.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This carefully crafted book--the result of a lifetime of study, teaching, and reflection on Paul--is drawn from firsthand witness of the apostle's Epistles and the book of Acts, rather than from the voluminous secondary literature on Paul. Only a master of the art can take a complex and sometimes daunting figure, and by focusing on what is true, essential, and enduring, produce such a lucid and illuminating study."
--James R. Edwards, Professor of Theology, Whitworth University

"Roger Mohrlang has produced a simple, basic, and lucid introduction to Paul's theology that will be helpful to a wide readership. The content of Paul's theology is set forth with impressive clarity, but also with very practical relevance to the human condition. The result is not only informative, but also practical and even inspirational. Few books offer so rich a content in such a small compass."
--Donald A. Hagner, Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

"[This] gives evidence of meticulous scholarship. . . . It unequivocally presents well-argued conclusions on some of today's controversial issues on the interpretation of Paul's writings and theology. It skillfully handles the difficult paradoxes in Paul's thought, but is written in a style that is accessible to the uninitiated. This is a rare combination that makes this an outstanding introduction to Paul that I hope to keep close to me for constant reference."
--Ajith Fernando, Teaching Director, Youth for Christ, Sri Lanka

"Clearly written, informed in its scholarship, and incisive in its treatment of the main issues in the apostle's life and thought, Mohrlang's book will serve as an excellent introduction to Paul. Solidly within the evangelical tradition, the book nonetheless offers a biblical challenge to a number of trends in contemporary evangelicalism. It will warrant and reward careful study."
--Stephen Westerholm, Professor of Religious Studies, McMaster University
