This page contains information related to my book, Contours of Pauline Theology (buy from Amazon).
From the links below you can access the full version containing the footnotes and full text that the publisher edited for the sake of brevity and to help non-academics access the work. It is worth noting that it is cheaper to buy the book than try and print off the chapters yourself!
Please Note: This version has not been proof-read and contains errors. Time does not permit editing but as the material has been requested I am happy for it to be available on the clear understanding of its limits.
