This is it! And the rest! The chapters are very clear and refreshingly short and his vision of Paul is really exciting and enlightening. Gorman has shown himself to be not merely an outstanding scholar but also someone able to communicate such insights to ordinary, thoughtful, non-scholarly types.
This is, without a shadow of doubt, the best introduction to Paul's theology I have ever seen.
His perspective is very coherent and is the best fit of anything i've read on Paul.
Read it and see...
All that said, the analysis of Paul's theology is sound and hits all the main points. For anyone starting out in understanding Paul this may be a useful starting point. Anyone who starts here, though, should be sure to read widely enough to be informed of the various controversies that surround Paul's letters and which this volume rather glosses over.
