I just received an announcement about a new book on Paul that will be coming out in the fall: Tim Gombis’s Paul: A Guide for the Perplexed (T&T Clark, 2010). Like most of the books in the Perplexed series, Tim’s book strives to provide a clear and concise introduction to his topic and its most pressing/challenging issues. So, after an introduction and a brief chapter on Paul’s life and ministry, Tim devotes chapters to the following:
- The Structure of Paul’s Thought
- The Cross and the Spirit: Life as the Kingdom of God
- Paul and Judaism
- Salvation: Divine and Human Action
- Paul and Women
- Politics and Religion
Tim’s a solid NT scholar and the book should definitely be worth checking out.
