New Testament scholar E. P. Sanders, one of the world’s foremost authorities on Paul the Apostle, offers an cogent and eminently accessible introduction to this integral, and often misunderstood, figure in the evolution of early Christianity that touches on, among many other things, Paul’s theology vis-a-vis the Judaism of his time, his approach to his mission to the Gentiles, and his perception of Jesus.
Robert Feifar’s energetic delivery propels this enjoyable and highly informative audiobook that will appeal to those open to liberal interpretations of scripture.
Missionary, theologian, and religious genius, Paul is one of the most powerful human personalities in the history of the Church. E.P. Sanders, an influential Pauline scholar, analyzes the fundamental beliefs and vigorous contradictions in Paul's thought, discovering a philosophy that is less of a monolithic system than the apostle's convictions would seem to suggest.
This volume offers an incisive summation of Paul's career, as well as his role in the development of early Christianity. Both lucid and judicious, it is the most compelling short introduction to Paul now available.
