The Living Paul
Full Product Description
Anthony Thiselton is convinced that throughout Christian history Paul has been both revered and maligned. Many of his teachings, for instance on women, are troublesome and controversial to todays reader and have led some to ask how can Paul possibly be relevant today?
Anthony Thiselton examines Pauls teachings afresh in The Living Paul. He shows, for example, that Paul was not a misogynist but that he believed in reciprocity and mutuality between men and women and in sexual relationships.
The Living Paul demonstrates that Paul had much to say about the everyday things which concern us, including vocation, giving, power and Christian unity.
Anthony Thiselton is Professor of Christian Theology at the University of Nottingham. He has previously taught at the Universities of Sheffield, Bristol and Durham and is known internationally for his work on hermeneutics and the theory of interpretation.
The Living Paul by Anthony C. Thiselton was published by SPCK in September 2009 and is our 31345th best seller. The ISBN for The Living Paul is 9780281061105.

The Living PaulChris Moore, via The Good Book Stall
The literature on Paul is enormous, and the debates over quite what is meant by his letters are vociferous. Anyone who ventures to write an introduction to Paul's thought is therefore undertaking quite a task. To do so in 160-odd pages only increases the challenge. Anthony Thiselton has an enviable reputation as a Pauline scholar, and has produced fine commentaries on 1 Corinthians as well as works on Hermeneutics and the Philosophy of Religion. This concise book on Paul therefore has a great deal of depth behind it and the seventeen chapters cover a wide range of topics. There are times when one wishes for more elaboration on some point or other, but this is the price to be paid for conciseness. The book serves as a good introduction to the debates and there is a useful bibliography for those who wish to take matters further. Professor Thiselton's experience in the field means that the reader is introduced to significant thinkers of the past century as well as current opinion.
