Then he describes characteristic features of the Pauline letters and interprets them in the light of documented editorial practices by comparing them to other published letter collections of the time (Cicero, Plinius etc). He comes to the conclusion that the New Testament collection of Pauline letters is best understood if one assumes that the Apostle Paul himself prepared some of them for publication (Romans, I & II Corinthians and Galatians). It is written in accessible language for anyone interested in New Testament scholarship. With footnotes, tables, and illustrations. The author taught at the University of Heidelberg, Yale Divinity School, and Bangor Theological Seminary.
