Item Description...
Overview
Unlike the many books that treat the apostle Paul merely as a historical figure and his letters as literary relics, this new study by Michael Gorman focuses on the theological message of Paul's writings, particularly what they have to say to the contemporary church. . An innovative and comprehensive treatment of Paul, including commentary on all of the Pauline letters, Gorman's "Apostle of the Crucified Lord" unpacks the many dimensions of Paul's thought carefully and holistically. Six introductory chapters provide background discussion on Paul's world, his resume, his letters, his gospel, his spirituality, and his theology, while the main body of the book covers in turn and in full detail each of the Pauline epistles. Gorman gives the context of each letter, offers a careful reading of the text, and colors his words with insightful quotations from earlier interpreters of Paul. Enhancing the text itself are questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter and numerous photos, maps, and tables throughout. All in all, "Apostle of the Crucified Lord" is the ideal book for students and any other readers interested in seriously engaging Paul's challenging letters.

Apostle of the Crucified Lord  Jan 14, 2008
This is a very fine book, written with some of the questions Catholics are most interested in while addressing the standard problems of reading St. Paul. I'm using it in a graduate class I'm teaching on St. Paul right now.
 
Great tool.  Mar 10, 2007
The book Apostle of the Crucified Lord is a great tool to be used when examining Paul's letters. It really help to understand the times that they were written in and the culture in the days of early Christianity. I am currently using the book for a college theology class and I also know of two other universities using it for the same class.
 
Pauline Epistles  Feb 20, 2007
This book offers a wonderful background of the world surrounding the letters of Paul. It also thoroughly and individually covers the letters of Paul and their aspects. It is a wonderful book for those wishing to understand the letters of Paul and interpret the passages of these letters. I am taking a class on Pauline Epistles and this is our primary text.
 
apostle of the crucified lord  Feb 10, 2007
Book arrived in immaculate condition much sooner than I anticipated. Would definitely buy again from this seller.
 
Apostle of the Crucified Lord  Jan 15, 2007
Decent look at Paul, but definitely not from a Conservative point of view. I found it frustrating at times, and a bit verbose.
