This short book for celebrating the Year of St. Paul is by Scott Hahn, who holds the chair of the Pope Benedict XVI Chair of Biblical Theology and Liturgical Proclamation at St. Vincent Seminary in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. Hahn provides the reader with an introduction into St. Paul, including a short biography of the saintís life and a discussion of his theology and thought.
Hahnís exploration of St. Paulís letters in the New Testament includes a quick reference for Catholic doctrines and practices in St. Paulís life and work. This short book finishes with some quotes and prayers from the Apostleís letters and a bibliography for further study.
A Pocket Guide to St. Paul is not meant to be a quick read, nor should it be read that way. It is not an overly academic book, but it serves its intent well as a good introduction to St. Paul and his works. This book is highly recommended for those interested in St. Paul and for those looking for a book to commemorate the Year of St. Paul.
