Abstract:

"Traditional Christian art depicts Paul the letter writer, pensive and pen in hand, attentive to the Spirit. Contemporary students of Paul might imagine him pacing in agitation as he rapidly dictates to a secretary his letter to the Galatians. But in reality neither of these pictures is accurate. Randolph Richards gives us a truly informed look at the letter-writing process in Paul's day and offers a new and intriguing perspective on how this important portion of Christian Scripture came to be."--BOOK JACKET.
