Synopsis: The apostle Paul and his significance for the New Testament and Christianity is a perennial topic of interest, but few evangelical surveys of his life offer a truly holistic picture of the man and his world. To fill the void, John McRay offers Paul: His Life and Teaching. In this scholarly yet accessible work, McRay explores the apostle's pre- conversion days, missionary travels, and theological contributions. A specialist in archaeology, the author draws on his more than forty years of teaching experience as well as knowledge gained from extensive travels to the places Paul visited. Paul is a comprehensive and readable presentation of Paul's ministry and theology that weaves together historical backgrounds, archaeological discoveries, and theological themes. The book is divided into two parts. The first part examines aspects of Paul's life as a Roman citizen and the leader of the early Christian church, including Paul's place within the Jewish rabbinic traditions. McRay details Paul's sudden, intense conversion and the beginning of his ministry and concludes with an exploration of Paul's journeys. The second part offers a detailed treatment of the form, structure, and theology of Paul's letters as they relate to the world in which he lived, also highlighting their continuing importance today. Included in this examination are discussions of Paul's theology of the atonement, understanding of the law of Moses, and view of the church. Professors and students will appreciate the book's broad scholarship and the pedagogical features found throughout, including links to other resources, maps, diagrams, and photos taken by the author during his travels. Pastors and church leaders will use it as a reference, and laypeople will gain a deeper understanding of Paul and his contribution to the Christian church.

From the Back Cover:

F. F. Bruce wrote in his masterful volume on Paul that ìno single event, apart from the Christ-event itself, has proved so determinant for the course of Christian history as the conversion and commissioning of Paul.î John McRay shares this conviction, which has guided his life as a college professor and Bible teacher. After forty-five years of teaching and extensive travel to the cities Paul visited, McRay distills a lifetime of research into this comprehensive introduction, a worthy successor to Bruceís classic. He explores the apostleís pre-conversion days, missionary travels, and theological contributions. Paul is a thorough and readable presentation of Paulís ministry and theology that weaves together historical backgrounds, archaeological discoveries, and theological themes. The book is divided into two parts. The first part examines aspects of Paulís life as a Roman citizen and as leader of the early Christian church, including Paulís place within Jewish rabbinic traditions. McRay details Paulís sudden, intense conversion and the beginning of his ministry and concludes with an exploration of Paulís journeys. The second part offers a detailed treatment of the form, structure, and theology of Paulís letters as they relate to the world in which he lived, highlighting also their continuing importance for today. Included in this examination are discussions of Paulís theology of the atonement, understanding of the law of Moses, and view of the church. Teachers and students alike will appreciate the bookís careful scholarship and the pedagogical features found throughout, including tables, maps, diagrams, and photos taken by the author during his travels. Pastors and church leaders will find this book to be a handy reference, and laypeople will gain a deeper understanding of Paul and his contribution to the Christian church.
