White in the process of reviewing Pauline literature, draws out several controlling metaphors to create an overall Pauline theology. These metaphors include God as mother, father and creator. Through use of these metaphors he explains how the postconversion Paul is markedly different from the preconversion Paul the Pharisee.
Another unique feature of this work is comparing Paul's writing to the social context of the Greco-Roman world. White does an excellent job drawing upon research on Greco-Roman family models to help explain the impact of Paul's theology in the Mediterranean context.
