✏An Introduction to the Study of Paul Book Summary : This tried and tested introduction to Paul needs little introduction of its own. After considering Paul's importance and influence, and the important sources for the study of Paul, the volume covers the following key topics: the earliest period of Christianity - from Jesus to Paul; Paul's life before and after his 'conversion'; his individual letters; the major elements of his theology; his attitude to Israel and the Jewish law; perspectives on the Pauline assemblies, including their socio-economic location, meeting places, and attitudes towards women; and Paul's legacy in the New Testament and beyond. The volume has been revised throughout and fully updated with respect to bibliography, and to presenting the latest debates surrounding Paul's thought in a manageable format - including those around 'old' and 'new' perspectives, with a new section on the 'radical' new Jewish perspective, and those related to the socio-economic status and character of the Pauline assemblies. The helpful study questions and reading lists have also been revised.

Martin Hengel once more challenges the overly skeptical assessments of the New Testament record and provides powerful support for his position on Paul.

✏Paul and the Vocation of Israel Book Summary : The Apostle Paul was the greatest early missionary of the Christian gospel. He was also, by his own admission, an Israelite. How can both these realities coexist in one individual? This book argues that Paul viewed his mission to the Gentiles, in and of itself, as the primary expression of his Jewish identity. The concept of Israel’s divine vocation is used to shed fresh light on a number of much-debated passages in Paul’s letter to the Romans.

✏Paul A Critical Life Book Summary : Here Jerome Murphy-O'Connor presents a completely new, and much more vivid and dramatic account of the life of Paul than has ever previously been attempted. From his childhood in Tarsus and his years as a student in Jerusalem to the successes and failures of his ministry, this biography has no peer in terms of its detailed reconstructions of Paul's movements and motives. Traditionally, the Acts of the Apostles has provided the framework for the lives of Paul. In recent years, however, the historical value of the Acts has been called into question. Despite the accuracy of many details, they have been linked in ways which reflect the interests of Luke rather than objective reality. Critical assessment is called for if they are to be incorporated into a life of Paul. The prime source for a reconstruction of the Apostle's life must be his own writings. Recent advances in the study of the letters have brought to light new depths which enables them to be used for biographical purposes. The originality of this book lies in the combination of these two approaches, which are reinforced by close attention to the social and cultural aspects of Paul's ministry as revealed by archaeology and contemporary texts—and it transforms a fountain of theological ideas into a human being.

✏Jesus Words Only Or Was Paul the Apostle Jesus Condemns in Revelation 2 Book Summary : An attorney argues the inspired New Testament consists of Jesus' words only. Paul's status is questioned. First, Paul never made a valid prophecy. Second, Paul must be rejected under Deut. 13:5 because he taught the Law of Moses was nullified. Lastly, Jesus most likely intended we understand Paul was the person in Rev. 2:2 whom the Ephesians put on trial and proved was a false apostle. This Ephesus trial is alluded to in Acts ch. 19. Paul refers to it several times as well.

✏Autobiography Keller Paul Madere in Words and Pictures Book Summary : In the living room were gathered my four sisters Elise, Jeanette, Nita, Rosemary, and me (Keller Paul Madere) along with my wife Carolyn and Charles Stalfort, Nita’s husband. After a lot of chit chat back and forth reminiscing about old family stories and happenings, Charles (or Chuck as we know him) brought out his tape recorder. Quizzically, he posed this simple question, “What can you tell me about PaPa?” He was referring to our father Ernest Hubert Madere. With feelings of unified dismay, none of the five of us were able to provide Chuck with any new information about PaPa other than what he already knew. Consequently, in order for the children of Carolyn and me, namely Joni, Colin, and Lana, to have some inkling regarding where I lived, what I did, and get a glimpse into my psyche before they were born and then grew up knowing me, this tome will provide some insight. Our children will have historical and genealogical information concerning their ancestry in words, pictures, and other relative and associated odds and ends. Nowadays, family members tend to get scattered hither and yon. Children often get permanently displaced regarding their backgrounds and family records. Items like birth certificates, report cards, names of 1st and 2nd cousins, aunts, uncles, close friends, associates, and similar pertinent items gets lost in the shuffel as time steadily marches on. Hopefully, this ponderous volume will soothe many misgivings our children may have about who they are, the backgrounds of their ancestors, and precisely where they came from. Amen!

✏Flights of the Soul Book Summary : Reports of dreams, journeys into the heavens, and other alternate states of consciousness abound in the Old and New Testaments and in extrabiblical literature. While some scholars have considered such reports to be simple literary devices, John J. Pilch a leading expert in social scientific interpretation of the Bible believes otherwise. As Pilch points out, anthropological research on over 400 representative cultures in the world shows that more than ninety percent of these cultures have reported such experiences routinely. Factual or not, he says, biblical accounts of alternate consciousness are both plausible and significant because they constitute a very common, real, human experience in their respective cultures. Drawing on insights from from anthropology, cognitive neuroscience, psychology, and the social sciences, Pilch investigates and interprets Old and New Testament accounts of dreams, visions, journeys into the heavens, and other alternate states of consciousness within their cultural contexts. The result is a fresh and intriguing take on familiar biblical events. Flights of the Soul sheds new light on such things as these: * Ezekiel s prophetic visions * Enoch s sky journeys * Jesus transfiguration and ascension * Resurrection appearances in the Gospels * Paul s ecstatic vision on the road to Damascus * John s heavenly journeys described in Revelation
