“In sum, this companion deserves a place on the shelf of every student, pastor, and scholar. It will be of more use to the former two, but even the scholar may reap some insights from this volume, especially in the sections that are more foreign to one’s field. I highly recommend this work.”  (Exegeticaltools.com, 23 December 2015) “The volume offers an up-to-date survey of major themes and current scholarship on Paul. Its attempt to bridge the gap between Paul and the reception of him through the ages and in theology is welcome.”  (Biblical Interpretations, 2015) “He has not only succeeded in making that conversation possible but has also produced a comprehensive work on Paul that will be of great benefit to all who open its pages for many years to come.”  (Religious Studies Review, 12 September 2014) “This broad and handsome volume is arguably the most comprehensive introduction to Paul ever produced … There is insight aplenty for every reader. Westerholm has assembled a stellar cast of scholars with a brief to elucidate the content and impact of Paul’s message through history ... A very worth-while collection of mostly top-notch articles by a group of scholars at the heights of their powers ... These essays could set the agenda for Pauline studies in some areas for many years to come and all will offer every student of Paul – expert and novice alike – much food for thought and further reflection.” Regent's Reviews “This is a handsome, important volume that will be of great value to most students of the New Testament and early Christianity ... Highly recommended: upper-division undergraduates and above.” Choice “Despite the mountain of books on Paul, including some substantial single-authored overviews, there are, to my knowledge, no major, multi-author companions of the length and scope of this new addition to the Blackwell Companions series ... The book offers a wealth of material to inform and stimulate the study of Paul’s impact on the history of theology ... The editor has assembled an international and high-quality team of expert contributors, whose essays are well written and well informed ... An important reference point for students of Paul – and, equally, students of Paul’s impact on the history of Christian theology – for some time to come.” Theology   “The contributors are first rate; the essays are concise, stimulating and informative; this is a very interesting and useful companion volume.”  Journal for the Study of The New Testament
Stephen Westerholm, D. Th., is Professor of Early Christianity in the Department of Religious Studies at McMaster University, Canada, where he has taught since 1984. Specializing in Pauline studies, he has published Israel's Law and the Church's Faith: Paul and His Recent Interpreters (1988), Understanding Paul and Perspectives Old and New on Paul: The "Lutheran" Paul and His Critics (2004), in addition to studies on the Synoptic Gospels and historical Jesus.
The Blackwell Companion to Paul offers a comprehensive overview of the life, teachings and legacy of one of the founding figures of Christianity. In a series of chapters by internationally recognized academics, the major aspects of Paul's life and work are explored, as well as his influence on Christian thinkers and Christian belief over the centuries and his impact on less discussed areas such as art and literature. The result is a wonderfully rich and wide-ranging volume. The first section approaches the study of Paul and Christian origins, offering clear and skilful accounts of Paul's life and writings, and exploring their social and historical setting. The second part addresses the influence of Paul on a number of key Christian thinkers, including Origen, Augustine, Aquinas, Luther and Barth, among others, as well as examining Jewish, Orthodox and African readings of Paul. The third part tackles the legacy of Paul on key topics of Christian theology such as ethics and ecclesiology, but also on art and literature. The outstanding group of contributors offer a uniquely comprehensive and impressive account of the major areas of Paul's life and work, as well as providing insights into lesser explored areas.
