Publisher's Summary

From internationally acclaimed New Testament scholar Fr. Raymond F. Collins, essential listening for Christians, Catholics, and all who seek to understand scripture.

Through this audio course, the capstone of Fr. Collin’s decades of teaching and scholarship, you’ll understand Paul’s Epistles like never before. Through 24 erudite and engaging lectures, you will gain new insights into the 13 letters attributed to Paul, the New Testament’s oldest texts.  

With Fr. Collins, you will enter into Paul’s world. First, you will look at Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians, Philippians, Philemon, Galatians, Corinthians, and Romans. By examining them in the order in which they were written, you will appreciate how Paul’s epistolary skills developed as he responded to issues that prompted him to write to the five churches. You will then explore the remaining texts in the Pauline corpus. You will look at Second Thessalonians, Colossians, and Ephesians, analyzing the unique character of the texts and the circumstances that prompted their composition. Finally, you will examine the epistles addressed to Timothy and Titus.  

This fascinating course will give you a greater understanding of Paul and his works, bringing you to the heart of the New Testament. 

This course is part of the Learn25 collection and includes a free PDF study guide.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

“Fr. Ray Collins is one of the finest New Testament scholars in the English-speaking world.... Fr. Collins uses an easy and understandable style." (Fr. John Ludwig)

“Father Collins’ superb scholarship shines through his accessible, lively and engaging lectures. As a parish director of adult education, I find them extremely helpful. They bring to life the New Testament writings in the context of the early Christian communities, allowing the viewer to better appreciate the relevance of these writings for today." (Fátima Lee, PhD, lay pastoral associate) 

“Not only a world class New Testament scholar and a prolific author of over fifteen books and three hundred articles, Fr. Raymond F. Collins is also a dynamic educator who makes complex ideas interesting and accessible to the non-expert. For good reason, he has been invited to conduct seminars, workshops and retreats around the world. If you are interested in solid, sound and erudite Biblical interpretation, look no further.” (Edward Sirois, chair, Religious Studies, La Salle Academy)
