Paul for Today is written not only for people puzzled by the writings of the apostle Paul, but also for those who find Paul difficult, and perhaps even objectionable. In an accessible style, it draws on the latest scholarship, exploring Paul's letters against their first century background to unveil their relevance for the Church of today. Neil Richardson has taught New Testament Studies for many years, first at Lincoln Theological College, and later at Wesley College, Bristol. His books include Paul's Language about God, God in the New Testament and Preaching from Scripture. He is currently a Senior Research Scholar at The Queen's Foundation, Birmingham. With wonderful clarity, Neil Richardson takes us beyond stereotypes of Paul, illuminating his context, and applying his message to the contemporary church and world. I will be commending this book at every opportunity to students, ministers, house-group leaders and anyone who wants to take both Paul's message and our own time with complete seriousness.' Stephen Wright, Spurgeon's College, London
