Item Description...
This book is a tool to study the letters structurally, formally and thematically by gathering relevant passages from all the letters onto the page or folio for immediate comparison. It is a sequential presentation of each of the ten chief letters attributed to Paul. Each letter is divided into sense units or paragraphs of discourse; these paragraphs, as they are designated, are numbered consecutively from the salutation of Romans to the closing remarks of Philemon. At the top left hand corner of the page, the reader will find the paragraph or sense unit in bold type. Next to it on the top half of the page are primary parallels (whether thematic, formal, or structural), and on the bottom half of the page secondary parallels are listed. Paragraph numbers are then used as the basis of the presentation of the materials and function effectively in a system of cross-referencing. Each letter is arranged in canonical order in its entirety from salutation to final grace and closing remarks. It highlights letter structure and formal elements in the Pauline letter collection. In order to indicate the full range of parallels, some paragraphs are printed several times.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
missing in action  May 6, 2007
Great book but its authors chose not to include 1&2 Tim. and Titus for their own reasons thus limiting its scope to the more liberal reader. Never the less it is a great resource.
A Very Useful Tool  Dec 6, 2005
As I see it, there are many books for biblical studies, but very few tools. As far as tools are considered, there are the primary texts themselves (including various literature from the time period), there are lexica (e.g., BDAG), concordances, grammars (e.g., BDF), and synopses (e.g., Aland's Greek synopsis of the four gospels). Pauline Parallels should join this list of necessary tools-especially for students of Paul.

One of the weaknesses of this work is the exclusion of the Pastoral Epistles. I think they should have been included even under the assumption that the Pastorals were not penned by Paul because they would at least represent a Pauline school of thought or be useful to those who deem them Pauline. The same criteria for the Pastorals should be granted as is given for Deuteros, but at least the Pastorals are referenced in the notes.

One of the strengths of Pauline Parallels is that it organizes the passages not by topic but by primary reference in canonical order. Thus the first passage is Romans 1.1-7 and the last is Philemon 25. Each section of Paul's writing is assigned a number so you can reference that number for further parallels. The passages are also divided into three sections. The first section is text at hand. So, let's say you're looking up Romans 12.9-21, the first section has the full text of that passage in bold typeface. The second and third sections are called Primary and Secondary respectively. What's the difference between the primary and secondary parallels? This is how it is explained:

"Letter-structure paragraphs and paragraphs containing formal elements are labeled and have structural and formal 'primary' parallels. When there are additional, thematic parallels, they are included as 'secondary' parallels. Paragraphs not labeled as structural or formal, namely thematic paragraphs, simply have primary parallels." (xiii)

There are also notes for specific verse references that refer the reader to sections in the Pastorals, Acts, other sections of the New Testament, and Old Testament. Additionally, there exists a helpful User's Guide and a number of different chronologies of Paul scattered throughout the book. The text used is that of the Revised Standard Version.
