In The Apostle Paul: His Life, Thought, and Letters, professor Stanley Porter takes readers through a comprehensive introduction to the apostle Paul, devoting serious consideration both to the background and major contours of Paul's thought and to the unique contributions of each of his letters.
The Apostle Paul: His Life, Thought, and Letters begins with an introduction to the Pauline tradition, as well as an overview of the basics of Paul's life, chronology of his ministry, and numerous imprisonments. Porter then discusses the background to Paul's thought, examining some of the major themes of his writings and addressing issues concerning the Pauline epistles, such as pseudonymity and canon.
Finally, readers are launched into all thirteen of Paul's letters individually, placing them within their historical contexts and examining critical issues relating to the content and interpretation of each letter. The result is a thorough, balanced treatment of one of the most important figures in Christianity.
