Reviews - What do customers think about Paul and His Theology: A Brief Sketch (2nd Edition)?
A great look at St. Paul the Apostle May 11, 2000
First off, this commentary by Fitzmyer can be hard to read. Stick with it though and it will pay off. His writing style can be dense, as it is crammed with footnotes and is rambling. Once you get used to his style, you notice how great his organization and ideas are. Fitzmyer really puts forth some great insights, and anyone who has read Paul will find themselves nodding their heads as they go through the book. I had to read this for a class on Paul, and I'm glad I did.
