The mid-1960's erupted in a virtual volcano of dissent against historical interests when reading ancient authors and texts. Authors were declared ?dead,? ?texts? were redefined, and revolutionary literary theories swept the academic landscape. Concurrently, studies on Paul exploded into new perspectives, counter perspectives, wildly different ?lives of Paul,? and a general disillusionment that anything at all about the ?real Paul?could be known. 

In the face of such explosive views, I Paulos poses a daring two-fold thesis: First, an ?authentic? Paul can be known from at least the letter of 1Thessalonians, just as much as anyone can be known from a personal encounter. For what is ?authentic? about authors inhabits particular kinds of texts like this one. Second, Paul can be seen in this letter as carrying on conversations on multiple levels and in a variety of shades, not only with his immediate audience, but with God through earlier authors and texts.

I, Paulos is a new kind of commentary? a contextual and conversational analysis of 1Thessalonians.

As I began to read I soon learned this was more than the standard approach to commentary. Gary sets out to uncover what can be learned about the author Paul as well as unwrap his letter. I was soon apprehensive that I was in over my head. Not having advanced degrees or a good grasp of Greek (perhaps an acquaintance with it) I was not sure I would gain much from the reading. As I continued I was impressed with Gary's thorough research and documentation. Even more impressed with his ability to lead me through the mountain peaks and valleys in a way even I could understand and appreciate. I read the entire book in shorter time than I expected. It was a great exercise in stimulating the my meager knowledge of Greek, increasing my understanding of theories and methods of translation, as well as opening my eyes to a better understanding of Paul and his letter to the close friends and fellow Christians living in Thessalonica.
