Abstract Masterly, balanced, concise, jargon-free essays on topics central to the theology of Paul, remaining closely in touch with the biblical text itself while always alert to the range of scholarly opinion and debate. These eleven articles from a recognized leader among New Testament scholars are an attractive entry-point for students into key aspects of Paul’s thought, and are, equally, well worth revisiting by experienced scholars. Two essays concern Paul’s personal life, one of them on the impact of his conversion on his understanding of Jesus, the other on his experience of prayer. In the context of Galatians, Longenecker explores the idea of the ‘pedagogue’, and in the context of Romans the questions of its addressees and its purpose. Other themes are Paul’s vision of community formation, his concept of mutuality, and the variability of his responses to opponents. In the last three essays, the focus is on Paul’s theology of the resurrection—its basis, its background in Jewish thinking, and whether his thought on the subject underwent development.
