In today’s world, it can be difficult to maintain your faith. Those seeking a greater understanding of the Bible have numerous excellent theological commentaries available to them, but due to volume and depth, many of these are out of reach of laypeople. Others lose contact with the Bible, because it no longer seems relevant to life. They use a superficial knowledge of science and evolution to exclude God and faith from their experiences.
The Layman’s Commentary: Volume 7 – Epistles of Paul presents a passage bypassage explanation of the thirteen letters of Paul to the early churches. In this seventh volume, author John Devine considers the writings of the academic, theologian, specialist in the Old Testament Scriptures and apostle to the ‘rest of the world’ as they relate to effective everyday living.
Paul’s deep understanding of the work and teaching of Jesus are addressed explaining God’s plan for a relationship with the individual and the means by which this was made possible by the death and resurrection of his Son. The expectation of eternal life and other important doctrines of the Christian worldview which have impacted people of all subsequent generations are highlighted and confirm that science and faith are complementary in giving purpose and meaning to life.
