Distinguished biblical scholar Frank Matera here views the theology of the Pauline letters through the lens of the saving grace that Paul experienced at his call and conversion. Focusing on christology, soteriology, theology, anthropology, ecclesiology, ethics, and eschatology, Matera explores both the unity and the diversity of the 13 Pauline letters.

Throughout my years of teaching, I have learned to look to Frank Matera as a sure guide to the thought of Paul. His commentaries on Paul’s various epistles are sterling examples of profound thought expressed with clarity and simplicity. This new distillation of Matera’s thought on Paul is to be welcomed by all teachers of the New Testament.

Clarity of thought and expression distinguishes this fresh (and refreshing) contribution to the study of Pauline theology. Matera sets for himself the bold task of explaining how the thirteen different Pauline letters are related to and cohere with one another theologically. . . . This volume is a must for all who are interested in Pauline theology.
—Marion L. Soards, professor of New Testament studies, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary
