This book in the Westminster Bible Companion series explores some of Paul's most central writings--including his earliest letters (those to the Thessalonians), his friendliest letter (Philippians), his most personal letter (Philemon), and a detailed autobiographical sketch of Paul's early life (Phil 3:3-8). In an engaging style, accessible for a broad readership, Weidmann explains how Paul set forth an energizing and steadfast foundation for life in Christ that has resonated throughout history.
