Lewis challenges the adequacy of 20th-century Protestant notions of Paul that distinguish his theology from his ethics, emphasize his oral preaching as the sole or primary vehicle for gospel proclamations and divine revelation, and deny that he engages in reasoned and ethical reflection. As an alternative, he proposes an understanding of how Paul does theology and ethics as a former Pharisee, first-century pastoral theologian, and Christian community builder with an apocalyptic perspective. The study is slightly revised from his doctoral dissertation submitted to Oxford University in 2003. T&T Clark is an imprint of Continuum.
