The Apostle Paul remains one of the most fascinating, enigmatic, and controversial figures of the early Christian Church. While much of his writing is liberating and inspiring, his words have also been used to support slavery, male domination, and religious exclusivism. Drawing on the literary and historical insights that have revolutionized contemporary Paul scholarship, Tatha Wiley skillfully separates the apostle's different voices, illuminating the authentic, historical Paul. Encountering Paul is a compelling look at this key figure in Christian history and belief.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Carefully distinguishing between the undisputed Pauline letters and the letters attributed to Paul but written by later disciples, Wiley makes a convincing case that much of what has passed for Pauline teaching, based for the most part on the later letters, is actually in opposition to the teachings of Paul. . . . The frequent summarizing of positions of other scholars as well as the inclusion of questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter make this a good choice for independent study. . . . This is an excellent choice for anyone seeking a popular introduction to recent scholarship on Paul. * Library Journal *
Seeks to help readers discover the Paul who was deeply committed to the God of Israel and embarked on a passionate journey of faith. * New Testament Abstracts *
This is a fresh new reading of Paul that helps bridge the gap between this creative theologian of the first century and the pressing theological questions of our day. Wiley not only makes Paul accessible, but illuminates what the best biblical scholars today are saying about him. -- Carolyn Osiek, Charles Fischer Professor of New Testament, Brite Divinity School
This basic introductory text is most appropriate for undergraduates in faith-based institutions or interested in lay readers. * Religious Studies Review *
