More About the Author

Michael J. Gorman is the Raymond E. Brown Professor of Biblical Studies and Theology at St. Mary's Seminary & University in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, where he has taught since 1991. He is a New Testament scholar who specializes especially in the letters, theology, and spirituality of the apostle Paul. His additional specialties are the gospel of John, the book of Revelation, theological and missional interpretation of Scripture, and early Christian ethics. In addition, he has a strong interest in the relationship between church and culture. From 1994 to 2012 he was Dean of the Ecumenical Institute of Theology at St. Mary's.

He earned his B.A. degree summa cum laude in French from Gordon College in Massachusetts. He received the M.Div. and the Ph.D. cum laude in New Testament from Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey, where he was also a teaching fellow in New Testament and an instructor in New Testament Greek. He has also been a visiting professor at Duke Divinity School, Wesley Theological Seminary, Mars Hill Graduate School, and Grand Seminare Notre Dame de l'Esperance in Cameroon.

He is the author of nine books and numerous articles on Biblical interpretation and on ethics. An avid traveler, he has also led several study trips to the cities of the apostles Paul and John in Greece and Turkey.

Michael Gorman was the 2005 recipient of The Fortress Press Award for Innovative Teaching in Graduate Schools and Seminaries, theological education's "teacher of the year" award. He also sits on several editorial councils and other professional committees. A United Methodist, he is an active layperson and a popular teacher at churches, institutions of higher education, and conferences representing many traditions.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Nick Norelli on November 26, 2007
Format: Paperback
There aren't enough positive adjectives in the English language to describe how I feel about this small volume. What Michael Gorman has given us is an extremely enjoyable introduction to the apostle Paul and his worldview. I say worldview as opposed to theology because Paul's theology is only one of many things touched on in this volume. Gorman runs the gambit of Pauline studies in examining Paul's gospel, christology, theology, ecclesiology, missiology, and a whole host of other -ologies. This book needs to be in the hands of every student taking an introductory class on Paul! Professors, I'm talking to you -- if you don't adopt this as your textbook then God help you!

Gorman's book breaks down the letters of St. Paul into comprehendible topics which critically analyze the key points in his letters. He also refrences the letters themselves quite frequently so it is helpful for readers who feel the need to look up bible passages. This book presupposes that the reader knows nothing about Paul other than he is a guy who wrote letters to churches. By the end of the book I felt like a Pauline expert!

This short little book on Paul is compressed with insightful comment and quotable observations. If you are looking for something short that clearly encapsulates Paul and his core messages, choose this book. If you are teaching any classes about Paul to non-scholars, this also is a wonderfully accessible resource.
