From The Publisher:

This significant book contains essays on Pauline thought and theology which span some twenty-five years, placing themes and issues in a broad chronological context of academic discussion. In addition to discussing major Pauline themes, and 1 Thessalonians in its religious and cultural context in particular, Karl Donfried raises the question of Paul's Jewishness with a fresh urgency, as well as opening new perspectives on the origins of earliest Christianity and its relationship with second temple Judaism.
