Review:

"In the hands of a master scholar and teacher, Paul's letters come alive for a wide readership. This is an outstanding, reliable guide to the great apostle's life and thought, the fruit of over 40 years of engagement with the thought of the intellectual giant among the first followers of Jesus."--Graham Stanton, Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity Emeritus, University of Cambridge

"Drawing upon his lifetime of study, research and teaching about Paul and hermeneutics, Tony Thiselton brings it all together to provide this wide-ranging yet concise introduction to the apostle's life and work, as well as to the main areas of his thought and his theology. Masterful in its scope, it is greatly to be welcomed."--The Rev'd Prof. Richard Burridge, F.K.C., dean of King's College London, and professor of biblical interpretation

"Thiselton's richly synthetic yet immensely readable book provides a superb general introduction to St. Paul's life and writings. His masterful treatment of historical contexts and scholarly evaluations includes an unusual sensitivity to the interplay of Pauline criticism with the broader intellectual history of Mediterranean and western tradition, period by period. This culminates in a bracing excursus on the pertinence of postmodernist literary theories to the interpretative tradition of the Pauline corpus which is, by itself, worth the price of the book for a serious student."--David Lyle Jeffrey, Distinguished Professor of Literature and the Humanities, Baylor University

"This relatively slm volume will bear much fruit in the hearts and minds of readers."--Rev. Richard Kew, The Living Church, May 6, 2013

"Almost everything that Thiselton writes makes his readers work, sometimes quite hard. The Living Paul is briefer than many of his books but is no exception. Yet I suspect that if it is properly digested this relatively slim volume will bear much fruit in the hearts and minds of readers, especially if they also happen to be preachers and teachers."--Rev. Richard Kew, The Living Church, May 6, 2012

"For pastors and educated lay people who want to sharpen their thinking and broaden their understanding, this book provides an excellent springboard for further reading, as well as a nuanced introduction to Pauline theology."--Susan Eastman, Interpretation, 66(1)

"Good introductions to Paul's life and theology are always welcome, and this book certainly fits that category."--Donald Senior, Bible Today, July 2010

From the Author:
