Web Sites

By Mark M. Mattison: a page “dedicated to the new perspective on Paul” featuring dissertation, articles and a review all by Mattison and multiple links to material both on site and off site, both in favour of and critical of the new perspective.  A very useful website for scholars and students of the NT.
Now updated and renewed, and added to the NT Gateway family.

By Jenee Woodard: a fine, comprehensive collection of links to articles, reviews and relevant material on Paul. There is no better place to start than this. A component of The Text This Week.

Based at “Third Millennium” website;  some useful introductory materials, largely conservative.

From the PBS documentary’s web site, this contains much useful information on Paul including sections on Paul’s Mission and Letters and Paul’s Congregations. The pieces are written by Wayne Meeks and Michael White, among others.

Well-organised excerpts from Vernon Robbins, The Tapestry of Early Christian Discourse: Rhetoric, Society and Ideology (London: Routledge, 1996); part of the web site on Socio-Rhetorical Interpretation.

By Prof. Dr Alfred Suhl: wonderful, animated powerpoint introduction to the study of Pauline chronology (in German). You will need to download the Powerpoint Animation Player to view the presentations, available free (PowerPoint 95) by following a link on the site, or available direct from Microsoft at this link: PowerPoint 97 Animation Player.

Edited by J. Shannon Clarkson: excellent and extensive materials from The Women’s Division of the General Board of Global Ministries, The United Methodist Church. This well designed web-site is both scholarly and devotional. Current features include Corinth at the Time of Paul’s Arrival, Maps Related to the Life of Paul and an Annotated Bibliography and more features are to be added throughout 2000 and 2001.

By J. Peter Bercovitz: large scholarly web site featuring original materials on Paul working on the basis of a John Knox / Gerd Lüdemann type letters-first chronology. The site is well designed and you have the option of working through it sequentially, page by page, or of navigating from the front page. It works on a variety of levels, from introductory (e.g. Paul’s Resumé) to more advanced (e.g. Letters Based Chronology). Also features good background material on early Christianity and useful sections on Acts.

By Craig Koester: clearly presented and nicely illustrated introduction to the life of Paul based on the Acts of the Apostles. Ideal for those looking for an introduction to the journeys of Paul in Acts.

By B. W. Johnson, from The People’s New Testament (1891); old-fashioned and conservative but still useful.

An enjoyable, illustrated virtual tour around the places Paul visited, featuring introductions and potted histories.

From the Unbound Bible at Biola University; this is more of an “Acts” link, but it does feature what it calls “Paul’s resume” and a conservative Acts-based chronology.

Visit this section of the New Testament Gateway to see several attempts to draw maps of Paul’s Missionary Journeys in Acts.

Web site of an interdisciplinary academic seminar, September 14-15, 2009, Leuven, Belgium, with several conference papers by scholars from various countries (PDF).
