File Name: rediscovering paul an introduction to his world letters and theology .zip
Paul , also known as Paul of Tarsus c. He is one of the most important figures within Christian history.
For some of us, the apostle Paul is intimidating, like a distant and difficult uncle. Maybe not someone you'd like to hang out with at a coffee shop on a rainy day. He'd make a scene, evangelize the barista, and arouse looks across the room. For a mid-morning latte, we'd prefer Jesus over Paul.
But Paul is actually the guy who—from Ephesus to Athens—was the talk of the marketplace, the raconteur of the Parthenon. He knew everyone, founded emerging churches, loved the difficult people, and held his own against the intellectuals of his day. This is a book that reacquaints us with Paul, as if for the first time. Drawing on the best of contemporary scholarship, and with language shaped by teaching and conversing with today's students, Rediscovering Paul is a textbook that has passed the test.
Now in a reworked edition, it's better than ever. The book is full of insights that help us understand Paul in his world and then guidance on how to bring those insights into our modern world. The second edition is even better! In the second edition, Capes, Reeves, and Richards keep the clear, accessible prose while updating information based on new scholarship.
This gem of a book is all you need to understand and appreciate Paul's letters and theology. With the creativity of teachers, they bring wit and real-life examples to their discussion of Paul. With the hearts of pastors, they demonstrate for students the relevance of Paul for today. With this second edition of Rediscovering Paul , students will emerge from the dense forest of Paul and his letters with a better understanding of the apostle, his world, and how his message of the crucified Christ can speak to the issues we face today.
