Item Description...
Overview
Teachings based on the letters of St. Paul permeate just about everything Christians believe and practice, but many of us know very little about this great apostle of the Church. In Meeting St. Paul Today, preeminent scholar Daniel J. Harrington, SJ, brings the letters of Paul and the apostle himself to life. Harrington, writing with great respect for St. Paul and his ministry, covers three main topics in this helpful and highly readable book for any discerning Christian. First, he describes what Paul was really like, from his days as a Pharisee to his arduous years as a missionary. Second, he helps readers interpret the letters of Paul through literary, historical, and theological lenses. Finally, he thoughtfully surveys the specific purpose, major points, and other compelling particulars of each of the letters of Paul.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Meeting Saint Paul Today  Jan 30, 2010
Dan Harrington is one of the best teachers, scholars and writers in Biblical theology and interpretation.
 
Excellent over-view  Mar 18, 2009
In the year which many Christian are celebrating as the 'Year of Paul' this book offers an excellent overview of the life, writings and contribution of the Apostle Paul. Whether the read is a re-visit to Paul, or a first-time introduction, the book can prove readable and user-friendly. It is general but never merely superficial, and scholarly while still being eminently popular.
 
Great way to celebrate the year of Saint Paul  Feb 23, 2009
If you are going to take time to learn something for this year of Saint Paul, here is a way to do it well.
 
A must for those who want to learn everything they can about the dominant religion of the western world  Jan 13, 2009
Who was Paul, the apostle who preached most of Jesus's word after his death? "Meeting St. Paul Today: Understanding the Man, His Mission, and His Message" takes a look at the man behind the words. Tracing his history from before he met Jesus to his activities after the Crucifixion which did much to advance the word of his mentor, "Meeting St. Paul Today" is a must for those who want to learn everything they can about the dominant religion of the western world.
 
Fascinating insight into St. Paul  Oct 8, 2008
This is a wonderful approach to St. Paul - Daniel Harrington, S.J. makes Paul and the communities to which he ministered come alive. He places Paul's writings in an understandable context. A very timely study for Pope Benedict's declared Year of St. Paul. Highly recommended for both personal and group study.
