Students of all ages appreciate a comprehensive overview of any topic they are studying. Here you have just such a convenient summary of the life, letters, and teaching of Paul of Tarsus, one of the key figures in early Christianity. The book first sketches Paul's Jewish pedigree, his sterling rabbinic training under Gamaliel the Elder, and his enthusiastic persecution of Jewish infidels known as the followers of Yeshua of Nazareth. After tracing the circumstances that gave rise to his thirteen extant letters written to infant Christian churches, the book ends with an investigation of Paul's relationship with the Jewish Law, the nation of Israel, and the historical Jesus. Other topics of timeless interest include his teaching on death, resurrection, and immortality, his view of baptism and the Lord's Supper, and his advice about ideal family relationships. And many readers will be startled to read about the four low points in Paul's career.
