Thiselton on Paul

Anthony Thiselton, author of a massive, excellent commentary on 1 Corinthians, has written The Living Paul: An Introduction to the Apostle’s Life and Thought, published 2009 by InterVarsity. See on this page two reviews. Though not a large work, it has Thistelton’s erudition behind it. From the first review, his position on women in leadership may be weak, but probably the second reviewer is not far from the mark when he says, "Surely, The Living Paul deserves the label as the definitive new introduction to Paul’s thought."

Our brethren have, rightfully so, a high appreciate for Paul and his writings, and this book will likely enhance that appreciation.
