Few Christian writings have had the world-changing impact of St Paul's epistles to the churches, and yet from the very beginning these works proved themselves to be tricky texts. The Second Letter of Peter, commenting about them, says: "There are some things in them that are hard to understand" (2 Pet 3:16). Indeed To this day many issues of their interpretation remain highly contested. In this book, Anthony Thiselton grasps the nettle and examines forty puzzling passages from Paul's epistles. He considers the various scholarly proposals about their meaning and offers his own reflections in the hope of dispersing fog and shedding light, and of expounding a coherent and self-consistent Paul.
Anthony Thiselton is Emeritus Professor of Christian Theology and Head of Department in the University of Nottingham, UK. He is also Emeritus Canon Theologian of Leicester and Southwell and Nottingham. He has written nearly thirty books, including major works on biblical interpretation and Paul's letters.
