The Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, Thinking through Paul: Audio Lectures includes high-quality live recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources.
The study of Paul and his letters can be exciting, challenging, and life-changing, but only if it is done well and only if listeners achieve more than a basic familiarity with the subject. This is exactly what Pauline experts Bruce W. Longenecker and Todd D. Still accomplish with Thinking Through Paul: Audio Lectures.
Thinking Through Paul: Audio Lectures introduces listeners to Paul’s life, letters, and theology. Longenecker and Still bring decades of study and expertise to bear, challenging listeners to delve deeply into Paul’s writings and to wrestle with his richly-layered and dynamic theological discourse.
Seeking to situate their study of the apostle in proper perspective, Longenecker and Still first look at Paul’s life before and after his encounter with the risen Christ en route to Damascus, then examine each of Paul’s letters individually, and finally synthesize the Pauline writings to highlight the main strands of Paul’s theologizing--all the while keeping in mind the particular context of first-century Christianity.
As a helpful complement to the textbook, Thinking through Paul: Audio Lectures is both engaging and easy-to-follow, making it perfect for listeners learning in the classroom use and for independent learners.
