From Library Journal
On the heels of its successful Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels (1992), Inter-Varsity presents this companion volume on Paul and his writings. It is a collection of 200 well-written, thorough, and informed articles on Pauline themes from Abraham to justification to wrath; epistles, as well as relevant critical and background issues such as Hellenism; social-scientific research; and the canonicity of the epistles. Among the members of the international team of 108 contributors are prominent contemporary evangelical scholars. Several of them have written extensively elsewhere on the topics they present here (James Dunn on Romans, F.F. Bruce on Paul in Acts, and Ben Witherington on Christology). The scholarship evident behind the articles is not presented at the expense of readability. Thus, this work is accessible to both scholarly and lay readers. Highly recommended for all seminary libraries and for academic and public libraries where there is sufficient interest.- Craig W. Beard, Univ. of Alabama at Birmingham Lib.
