This volume, which collects together the work of several established scholars attempts to situate the Apostle Paul, the Pauline writings, and the earliest Christian Gospels together in the context of early Christianity. It addresses the issue of how the Christianity depicted in and represented by the individual Gospels relates to the vision of Christianity represented by Paul and the Pauline writings.This raises such questions as to what extent did Paul influence the canonical and non-canonical Gospels? In what way are the Gospels reactions to Paul and his legacy? A comparison of the Gospels and Paul on topics such as Old Testament Law, Gentile mission, Christology, and early church leadership structures represents a fruitful area of study. While a number of volumes have appeared that attempt to assess the relationship between the historical Jesus and the Apostle Paul relatively few studies on Paul and the Gospels have been published. This volume excellently fills this gap in New Testament Studies and makes a valuable contribution to studies on Christian Origins, Pauline research, and the Gospels.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There is much to praise about this volume of essays: they are all well researched and clearly written, and they make detailed arguments. As a collection, these essays demonstrate the wide variety of historical, literary, or thematic approaches one could take when describing the relationship between Paul and the Gospels...The inclusion of the Gospel of Thomas into the debate is itself an advance in current scholarship. Finally, every essayist's conclusions are thoughtful, measured, and avoid exaggeration. -- Todd Brewer, University of Durham * Biblical Theology Bulletin *
A valuable effort [at] capturing an extremely interesting question of contact between Paul and the Gospel tradition ... [Paul and the Gospels] should definitely be read by scholars, students, and everybody interested in the formative period of early Christianity -- Marcin Kowalski * The Biblical Annals, issue 4 *
