This introduction to the apostle Paul and his letters is a good book to begin a study of the Pauline epistles. Some of his discussions can get a little difficult to follow, especially his discussion of Paul's theology. Soards focuses his evaluation of Paul in the context of Paul's eschatological beliefs. Soards' organization is excellent, and he writes in an easy to follow style. Overall, a good book for the New Testament beginner.

Apostle Paul: An Introduction to His Writings and Teaching, by Marion L. Our Sunday Visitor’s Encyclopedia of Saints. Paul Among Jews and Gentiles and Other Essays, by Krister Stendahl. You have heard, I know, the story of my former way of life in Judaism. You know that I went to extremes in persecuting the Church of God, and tried to destroy it. But the time came when he who had set me apart before I was born and called me by his favour chose to reveal his Son to me, that I might spread among the Gentiles the good tidings concerning him.

So, why this book on Paul? Perusal of the platoon of Paul books shows that the works fall into three categories: scholarly monographs, collected essays, and books for a mythical general audience. Whatever the character of these contributions, they usually seek to serve one of three aims: to produce a life of Paul, to examine a letter or the letters of Paul, or to summarize Paul's theology in general or on some particular point. Rarely, a book pursues two goals, as does Gunther Bornkamm's Paul, which treats both Paul's life and his theology. Perhaps Bornkamm's ambitious format as much as the quality of his scholarship has made his book the standard text for Paul courses for more than a decade. The book continues to be the standard introductory text to Paul despite being the product of an interpretative approach that the majority of contemporary critical scholars considers to be less-than-adequate. And so, teachers and students of Paul cry out for a new text.
The Apostle Paul is, on the one hand, daring, and, on the other, reckless in seeking to speak to all three areas of Pauline studies------life, letters, and theology. With the overload of Paul books, nothing short of this approach seems suitable for a new book on Paul. Paul's life, letters, and theology must be treated together, since to do otherwise is to risk distorting one or more of the areas of Pauline studies. Moreover, one encountering Paul needs information regarding all three areas, and no such book exists------especially one that understands Paul from the apocalyptic perspective which characterizes this study.
Thus, even though there are perils in this Pauline project, the task is undertaken. The format and much of the contents of this book developed and were refined in teaching Paul to both advanced undergraduate students and primary level (on Paul) seminarians. To those partners in Pauline studies at Louisiana State University and Union Theological Seminary, New York, I owe thanks for the motivation to produce this work designed to introduce the mission and message of one whose labors and thinking form an essential part of the foundation of all subsequent Christianity.
The work of many scholars influenced much of the understanding of Paul set forth in this book. Among those to whom I am particularly beholden are J. Christian Beker, Dieter Georgi, Ernst Kasemann, Leander E. Keck, Helmut Kowester, Wayne A. Meeks, and, above all, J. Louis Martyn. Experts in biblical studies will recognize my indebtedness to these and many others, but in consideration of the nonprofessional readers, I have not freighted this work with scholarly footnotes; yet those readers who desire to plunge deeper into Pauline studies will find pointers in the bibliographies included throughout the book.
