`Few studies of Paul have managed to pack such a wealth of detail into such a short compass and yet provide an eminently readable and clear narrative. Brevity demands not merely careful selection of material but a suitable ordering of that material, and ... [Ziesler's] book scores highly on both counts.' Expository Times
`Specialists will notice that Ziesler's treatment is balanced and comprehensive (the order of composition itself evinces a wholeness of view which is now commonly recognized to be lacking in many more ambitious treatments of the subject). He is candid about what is unclear and fair to the numerous positions which he reviews in the course of his discussion.' Heythrop Journal
`An adimirably clear and comprehensive study of Paul's theology - ideal for students beginning to explore this subject.' J Barclay, University of Glasgow
`This book is an excellent introduction to Paul, steering skilfully through this minefields of current controversity among his interpretations, a model of lucidity and sense.' Professor David Catchpole, University of Exeter
`The Oxford Bible Series has made life a lot easier with the provision of suitably shaped and priced textbooks.' Dr J. M. Court, Senior Lecturer, Department of Theology and Religious Studies, University of Kent, Canterbury
'an introduction assuming no awareness of the key discussion points ... the revised and up-dated version of Zieslet's balanced and comprehensive treatment in the Oxford Bible Series is to be welcomed for its combination of richness and brevity.'
