Kregel has recently revived the idea of a chart book with their Charts of the Bible and Theology Series. This section deal with chronology and attempts to blend Acts and the Pauline letters. Some of these are long lists (all the men in Paul’s letters, for example). A six-page chart collects all the verses in Paul’s letters describing his opponents (with descriptive phrases in bold text).

These 111 charts cover a wide range of topics regarding Paul, which are organized into four sections: Paul's Jewish and Greco-Roman background; his life and ministry; his letters; and his theology. ISBN13: 9780825429361. Release Date: November 2012.

Paul's letters have fascinated and challenged most every reader of the Bible. As a result, many general introductions and specific studies on Paul are available, but none are like Charts on the Life and Letters of Paul, which provides over 100 charts to explore the apostle's background, life and ministry, letters, and theology. The charts visually offer clarity on: Basic insights (e.g., "Autobiographical Information") Comparisons (e.g., "Parallels between Acts and Paul's Letters") Advanced tools for further study (e.g., "Key Words in Romans") Analysis (e.g., "The 'New Perspective' on Paul") Research (e.g., "Key Texts and Their Interpretations") Comments on the charts and discussions of significant theories-with leads for further exploration-are offered together with an extensive bibliography that includes references to past and current Pauline scholarship.

Interested Bible readers as well as students of Paul's life, letters, and theology will find plenty of material to deepen their understanding. Teachers will find the charts to be a valuable teaching resource. This book is an excellent supplement to any general introduction or specific study on Paul.

The material is well presented and is user-friendly to some of the Pauline themes and material. The price is affordable in today's economy and provides a valuable resource beyond a particular class.

From Lars Kierspel and Kregel publishing, comes Charts on the Life, Letters, and Theology of Paul. The title of the book says it all. The question is, is it worth your money?

Let me provide a succinct answer and back it up with three points: No educated pastor, teacher, lay leader, seminary student or interested Bible student should be without this book. The book is that good. Why?

1) It features 111 charts on virtually every area of Paul's life, letters and thought. It is as comprehensive as you might imagine...and then some. A few highlights include chart 89 which gives the highlights on the "faith of Christ" vs. "faith in Christ" debate; charts 48 and 49 which detail the list of Paul's quotation AND allusions to Old Testament passages; chart 43 which contains every hapax legomena in Paul's letters and charts 1-9 which contain a wealth of information concerning Paul's cultural background.

My only complaint (and I feel ridiculous even complaining about this) is that I wish they had a chart for the key words for every one of Paul's letters. Lars Kierspel provides one for 1 Corinthians and Romans...and I loved it so much I wanted one for every letter.

2) The raw data presented is simply breathtaking. Keep in mind that there are few conclusions the charts themselves draw (you can find that in Lars' commentary on his charts in the last few pages of the book). Instead what is at your fingertips is just pure data. It essentially boils down all of the exegetical information you need and tells you, "Now study and draw conclusions." It is a treasure trove of data that I had to go to multiple sources to find before. I love that it is all in one place now.

3) It is wonderfully laid out. A book that has a bunch of charts is no good if the charts are confusing. Thankfully, the charts are clear, concise and easy to read. There is a lot of information packed into these charts and the fact that they are still easily understood is a testament to how much thought went into this volume.

Color me impressed -- and I am not usually impressed with theological cartography. I guess it's because of the older charting of eschatology and other facets of (should-be-by-now) long forgotten theological pretensions. And to reach for perfect honesty in this moment, I have purposely avoided Kregel`s other charting books because some implied (by me) simplistic notions of what these books would look like on the inside. However, I must admit that after spending some quality time with this particular book, again I say I am impressed. The author, Lars Kierspel, is the former department chair at Trinity College but now teaches at Shiloh University in Iowa.

There are 111 charts exploring all sorts of issues with Paul's theology, letters, and life. The book is divided into two sections. The first section includes four categories of charts -- Paul's Background and Context; Paul's Life and Ministry; Paul's Letters; and Paul's Theological Concepts. Included in the letters is the entirety of the Pauline corpus -- Paul, Deutero-Paul, and Pseudo-Paul. Granted, these are modern break-ups based on historical criticism, and rightly so, given that "Paul" is identified as each author, we should not use Marcion's scissors when discussing the corpus in a theological context. As a give to those who do enjoy historical criticism, several of the charts include issues such as the New Perspectives and a nice list of charts digging into language of Paul. For the intertextual critics among us, charts 43-52 are especially insightful, if not extremely important in exploring a literary critical model of these letters.

The second section of the book, the Chart Comments, gives the author's view and commentary on each of the charts in the first section. Here, the author takes to the ground to describe what he sees in the chart and even to recommend how to use it. Again, I turn to what first drew me to this book in particular -- the New Perspectives on Paul (NPP; Chart 111). Kierspel calls attention to needed understanding of the plurality of the paradigm shifting school (251). He summarizes without polemic the basic arguments of the NPP while equally summarizing the basic argument against the NPP, ending with a mediating position. This is a welcomed allowance for those of us who do hold to some form of the NPP. Unfortunately, no such mediating position is given on the authorship of the letters generally considered to be non-authentic (see charts 72-3 and comments on said charts, 235).

One of my favorite charts (and subsequent commentary) is chart 77 (141-4). In this chart, Kierspel gives Key Texts and Their Interpretations. They include Romans 1.17, Galatians 2.16, Colossians 2.18, and 2 Timothy 3.16. Along with each verse citation he gives several possible interpretations. For instance, at 2 Timothy 1.18, he gives two very succinct choices - either Onesiphorus is dead or he's not and either way, Paul either prays for him or expresses a wish for him. In the commentary section (237), he provides suggestions for scholars who hold some of the divergent opinions he has listed. Weiser, for instance, in looking at 2 Timothy 2.18.

Over all, I am greatly impressed with the quality scholarship devoted to the charts as well as to the commentary section. This is a fantastic resource for the study of the Pauline corpus and highly recommended.
