Από τον εκδοτικό οίκο Bloomsbury κυκλοφόρησε η τρίτη έκδοση του εισαγωγικού έργου του καθ. του Exeter David Horrell στον Παύλο και τη σκέψη του. Πρόκειται για ένα εξαιρετικό φοιτητικό εγχειρίδιο αλλά κι ένα χρήσιμο εργαλείο για όποιον θέλει να έχει μία πρώτη γεύση της παύλειας θεολογίας. Το γεγονός ότι το βιβλίο επανεκδίδεται για τρίτη φορά βελτιωμένο και επικαιροποιημένο είναι μια καλή απόδειξη της σημασίας του:

Description /  Περιγραφή
This tried and tested introduction to Paul needs little introduction of its own. After considering Paul's importance and influence, and the important sources for the study of Paul, the volume covers the following key topics: the earliest period of Christianity - from Jesus to Paul; Paul's life before and after his 'conversion'; his individual letters; the major elements of his theology; his attitude to Israel and the Jewish law; perspectives on the Pauline assemblies, including their socio-economic location, meeting places, and attitudes towards women; and Paul's legacy in the New Testament and beyond.
The volume has been revised throughout and fully updated with respect to bibliography, and to presenting the latest debates surrounding Paul's thought in a manageable format - including those around 'old' and 'new' perspectives, with a new section on the 'radical' new Jewish perspective, and those related to the socio-economic status and character of the Pauline assemblies. The helpful study questions and reading lists have also been revised.
