This study introduces the different aspects of the study of the apostle Paul, primarily to the differing positions and methods developed by contemporary scholars in Pauline studies. By setting out these views, and the evidence on which they are based, Horrell equips the reader to approach the study of Paul, with an awareness of the range of current debate and knowledge of the evidence and arguments they will encounter. After considering Paul's importance and influence, and the important sources for the study of Paul, the book examines: the earliest period of Christianity - from Jesus to Paul; Paul's life before and after his 'conversion'; his individual letters; the major elements of his theology; his attitude to Israel and the Jewish law; new approaches to the study of Paul, including social-scientific and feminist approaches; and Paul's legacy in the New Testament and beyond. In this second edition, the discussion of Pauline studies is brought right up-to-date. Sections dealing with areas of ongoing debate (e.g. on the 'new perspective'; the social level of the Pauline Christians) have been extended in the light of the most recent discussion. New sections have been added on: Paul's 'worlds' (Jewish and Greco-Roman: ch. 1); Paul's use of scripture (in ch. 5); and Political dimensions of Paul's gospel (ch. 7). The bibliography and suggestions for further reading are updated and each chapter includes a list of study questions.
