Westminster John Knox Press Pauline Parallels: A Comprehensive Guide

Paul's letters to early churches form one of the largest and most theologically rich parts of the New Testament. Wilson examines each passage from every one of Paul's letters-including those that some scholars believe were written by someone else-and shows how they overlap and connect with passages from a broad spectrum of ancient literature. Parallels are drawn with other Pauline letters, New Testament and Old Testament writings, early Jewish literature such as the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the philosophical and religious works of Greece and Rome. In terms of its range of parallels, this book is the most complete study of its kind to date. Pauline Parallels: A Comprehensive Guide is sure to be an invaluable resource for understanding Paul's concepts for many years to come.

A fantastic guide and review work of art. The amount of detail is absolutely hands down the best I have seen. Probably to in-depth for your average bible reader. I am a full time biblical student and it is great, but it might be too much for your average reader. great book, a must have for biblical studies students.
