Pauline teaching, in conjunction with the teachings of Christ, provides the foundation for Christian thought on a wide variety of subjects, including Christian life and society. Originally published in 1906, this book attempts to show how St Paul's teachings on social issues may be applied to modern problems. Chadwick examines the influences of both Jewish and Gentile thinkers on the formation of Paul's teaching and its overlap with modern sociological principles of social welfare. An analysis of certain key passages, such as the fourth chapter of the Epistle to the Ephesians, is also provided. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Christian social teaching and the history of Christian philosophy.
