Rowan Williams explores the essentials of Paul's thought for complete beginners - as well as for those who've read Paul's letters many times before and want to see them in a fresh light. Written at a highly accessible level, this book would make a perfect gift for anyone thinking about confirmation, while also appealing to people who are curious as to why Paul has had such a profound influence on Christian history and belief.

A convincing interpretation and a deep meditation -- Praise for Meeting God in Mark * Jurgen Moltmann, University of Tubingen *
There could be no better introduction to this enigmatic but profound Gospel. -- Praise for Meeting God in Mark * Morna D. Hooker, University of Cambridge *
This wonderful book shows how Mark's beautiful and subtle gospel still challenges our understanding of God, and of how God works in our lives. . . I could not put it down. -- Praise for Meeting God in Mark * Timothy Radcliffe, OP, Blackfriars, Oxford *
Forget the notion that Williams' writing is dense. This is chatty and colloquial. It should help preachers to get Paul 'right' (perhaps supplemented by some of Tom Wright's commentaries). -- Derek Jay * The Reader, Summer 2016 *
It is quite extraordinary how much Rowan Williams manages to include in one chapter - all beautifully, briefly and clearly explained... It is difficult to imagine a better short introduction to St Paul than this. -- Neil Richardson * Methodist Recorder *
Rowan William's patiently paced exercise represents, as a cover blurb puts it 'a lifetimes' learning and praying....distilled into profound simplicity. -- Markus Bockmuehl * The Times Literary Supplement *
Is ideal not only for personal reading but for work in groups. Indeed, it includes questions at the end for discussion, as well as selected readings for use during Lent. This is a book which draws on all the best Pauline scholarship of recent years while showing also the author's characteristic independence of mind and judgement. At the same time, it succeeds admirably in its aims of making that scholarship available in non-technical language. -- Richard Harries King's College * Theology Journal Issue 119.4 *
An asset to scholar and general reader alike. * The Furrow *

“A one-sitting read - a must have offering from a great theological mind ”

Of late there have been a great many books on Paul and his writings and when I first saw this I found myself in a place where on one side I thought, “Oh no, not another one!” and “Wow, it’s Rowan so it must be good.”... More
