The Fifth Evangelist by A. M. Hunter
St Paul has often been sadly misunderstood, both by Christians and non-Christians. Pan One of this book is a personal - indeed autobiographical - invitation to the reader to think of Paul as `the fifth evangelist, the first in point of time and of value both'. Then, from his letters, Professor Hunter has portrayed him in turn as writer, liberator, pastor, theologian, churchman, friend and saint. In Part Two, after chapters on St John and the new look' that has come over his Gospel in our time, he has added further essays on the Lord's supper, the Holy Spirit, prayer, preaching and the church's hymns. The final chapters concentrate on those three little words, faith, love and hope, which, properly understood, take us back to the church's first beginnings, as still today they sum up what it means to be a Christian. A. M. Hunter, Professor Emeritus of New Testament, was formerly Master of Christ's College, Aberdeen.
