John Goldingay editor
Designed for serious readers of the Bible, The Pillar New Testament Commentary seeks above all to make clear the meaning of the text of Scripture as we have it. Writers of the PNTC volumes interact with the most important, informed contemporary debate yet avoid undue technical detail. Their ideal is a blend of rigorous exegesis and exposition, scholarship and pastoral sensitivity, with an eye alert both to biblical theology and to the contemporary relevance of the Bible.
In this superbly detailed biography Tom Wright traces Paul's career from zealous persecutor of the fledgling Church, through his journeys as the world's greatest missionary theologian, to his likely death as a Christian martyr at the hands of Nero in the mid 60s CE. Drawing judiciously on the latest research into the Jewish, Greek and Roman worlds, and enriched by a wealth of critical insight into Paul's own writings

Helen-Ann Hartley Again and again, we hear that such-and-such an opinion is not ‘biblical', implying that the Bible speaks with a unified voice on any matter. With humour and examples drawn from art and life, Helen-Ann Hartley argues that our reading of this varied collection of writings has to be generous, not exclusive. To appreciate fully the Bible's richness and diversity, we have to wrestle critically and creatively with themes that attract us and repel us.
