This study (in its 3rd edition) introduces Paul, the Man-Mountain, to explore why and how we should study him. Chapter 2 looks at the earliest period of Christian history and Paul's early contact with the Christian movement. Chapter 3 examines Paul's life before and after his encounter with Christ. Chapter 4 looks at Paul, the letter-writer, through which he is primarily known, although they were only a secondary part of his activity. Chapter 5 looks at the central elements of his Gospel, and what is key to his theology. Chapter 6 notes that Paul's Gospel is thoroughly and profoundly Jewish; this chapter surveys some of the most difficult and important themes. Chapter 7 focuses on the approaches that have opened up new angles on the communities that Paul addressed; this focus includes others who were part of the Christian movement. Thus, the focus is not so much theological as aspects of the socio-political context and social realities of the earliest Christian communities. Looking at Paul's legacy in the New Testament and beyond (chapter 8), Horrell notes that each letter attributed to Paul deserves careful attention. Chapter 9 concludes by posing three basic reasons why studying Paul is important: historical, literary and theological. Horrell suggests that no one who wishes to understand the modern world can do so without some understanding of Christianity, and specifically of Christian origins. And that means an understanding of Paul.
