Description: This study of the letters of St Paul examines his presentation of the reality and the demands of Christian living. After explaining Paul's understanding of the human condition and God's saving initiative in Israel, the author examines the multiple effects of the self-giving life of Jesus Christ for believers, working through eleven images that Paul uses to convey the reality of that communal life. Then Paul's take on the presence and effects of the Spirit is discussed along with the qualities of the resultant life "in Christ." The author explores further what the great saint says about the spiritual life, the “how to” in the day-to-day activities and concerns of Christians. For Paul, all of a believer’s life is spiritual life. The alternative is a life “according to the flesh,” a self-centered life without God, a continual spiritual death. Finally, we are presented with a synthesis of all the commands, prayers, and wishes that Paul makes to his communities in order to contemplate his vision of Christianity, the spiritual life "in Christ."
