Apostle of the Crucified Lord: A Theological Introduction to Paul and His Letters
Unlike the many books that treat the apostle Paul merely as a historical figure and his letters as literary relics, this new study by Michael Gorman focuses on the theological message of Paul s writings, particularly what they have to say to the contemporary church.
An innovative and comprehensive treatment of Paul, including commentary on all of the Pauline letters, Gorman s Apostle of the Crucified Lord unpacks the many dimensions of Paul s thought carefully and holistically. Six introductory chapters provide background discussion on Paul s world, his rsum, his letters, his gospel, his spirituality, and his theology, while the main body of the book covers in turn and in full detail each of the Pauline epistles. Gorman gives the context of each letter, offers a careful reading of the text, and colors his words with insightful quotations from earlier interpreters of Paul.
Enhancing the text itself are questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter and numerous photos, maps, and tables throughout. All in all, Apostle of the Crucified Lord is the ideal book for students and any other readers interested in seriously engaging Paul s challenging letters.
