The Meaning of Paul for Today
Using the Pauline Epistles as his basis, the author seeks not only to assess the role of Paul in the history of religion but to examine and define the permanent significance of his thought, to describe the relevance of Paul to the disorder of modern life, and to make clear the bases of the apostolic religious community for which Paul strived. This book is therefore not only a brilliant and significant commentary on the Pauline literature, but a daring attempt to establish the contemporaneity of its teaching.
