Item description for Hard Sayings of Paul: Love, Work & Parenting in a Changing World by Manfred Brauch...

As even Peter observed, Paul's letters ''contain some things that are hard to understand.'' Brauch tackles forty-eight of them, such as ''Hand this man over to Satan,'' and ''I do not permit a woman to teach.'' By supplying background information and by putting each passage in the context of the whole of Paul's teaching, Brauch helps you understand the importance of Paul's sayings for Christian life today.

Publishers Description
The apostle Paul makes clear the central truths of Christianity. But sometimes he leaves us puzzled. As Peter said so long ago, Paul's "letters contain some things that are hard to understand." Is the law good? Is it better to be single or married? Is God really just? What wil happen to the Jews? Should women be allowed to teach? Seldom have the questions become easier over time. Manfred Brauch, drawing on years of pastoral experience and biblical study, takes on forty-eight hard sayings of Paul and offers the kind of help we need. By supplying background and putting these sayings in the context of the whole of Paul's teaching, he helps us not only to understand them but to see their importance for Christian living today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hard Sayings of Paul?

Hard Sayings of Paul  Aug 20, 2005
This is a fun book for any Bible student especially a student of Paul's writings. Brauch does an excellent job of exegesis.
A well-ordered compilation of the apostle's tough words.  Sep 6, 1999
This is a good resource by a fine Bible teacher, touching on those quite difficult statements of the Apostle Paul. Each of the 48 chapters feature a different statement, such as "Handing Over to Satan" and "No Women Teachers." I found the author to be insightful and helpful. It serves as a good resource for the pastor's library.
