Product Overview

Seesengood traces the life and impact of Paul - one of Christianity''s most influential figures - through the major periods Christian history. Exploring the changing interpretations of Paul and his work, the author throws new light on his writings and on religious history.

Offers a unique, insightful journey through the many and varied interpretations of Paul''s life and work over 2,000 years - from the Gnostic controversy, to Luther and the Reformation, to contemporary debates over religion and science

Explains Paul''s pivotal role within Christian history, and how his missionary journeys, canonized epistles and theological insights were cornerstones of the early Church and central to the formation of Christian doctrine

Argues that each new interpretation of Paul is the result of a fresh set of cultural, social and ideological circumstances - and so questions whether it is ever possible to discover the real Paul
