In your opinion what does everyone think is the most comprehensive Pauline Theology?

Christian,

In order to keep your many requests for books, resources, and sources in line with the forum rules not to discuss theology or various views, I suggest asking for the best sources available in Logos on Pauline theology, or the best way to use Logos to study Pauline theology. Here is one you may want to consider: https://www.logos.com/product/32340/paul-apostle-of-gods-glory-in-christ-a-pauline-theology

I strongly advise you to use the bibliography of a book you have read on Pauline Theology as a source for references to additional works -- concentrating on books mentioned frequently and favorably. This helps you learn by having additional reading build on what you already know rather than creating another island you don't know how to connect with other information.

I’ve found a lot worthwhile in James P. Ware’s book Paul’s Theology in Context (https://www.logos.com/product/168627/pauls-theology-in-context-creation-incarnation-covenant-and-kingdom).

I don't think that there is a single book that everyone thinks is the most comprehensive Pauline Theology - the theology of  Paul has been debated quite extensively for years, and there simply is not a consensus on it.

That said, I have found Beker useful for seeing how Paul is based on Apocalyptic thought.

You’d also benefit from doing a search in Logos on “New Perspective“ to access what you’ve got in your library on the more recent Pauline debates. This should throw up discussion in commentaries and monographs. 

A topic search on justification would also set up a lot to look at, but remember that’s only one aspect of Pauline theology. 

This resource, available in Logos, might also help https://www.logos.com/product/15824/paul-fresh-perspectives - but please remember that Wright is a leading proponent of one side of the debate: others would strongly oppose him.

Paul and the Gift by Barclay (https://www.logos.com/product/156186/paul-and-the-gift) is a recent (mammoth) tome in Logos, as is Paul and the Faithfulness of God by NT Wright (https://www.logos.com/product/29160/paul-and-the-faithfulness-of-god) - that also has a huge bibliography on Pauline theology.

Paul and the Power of Grace is the mini-version : 200 pages + 1/2 the price.

or various views

Strange when higher learning highest standards do call for comparison.

I don't think that is what Bill meant. In context, I took him to mean "controversial" views which in the forums can mean any view.  This morning I was musing how a simple request for information "How many tablets were required for Moses to inscribe the Torah ... and how many draft animals were needed to drag them through the desert?" would devolve into several side bars, each requiring their own cartoonist. [Okay, perhaps only DMB will appreciate my humor.]

Aside for the curious: The question is ill-formed.  Egypt moved to wood and papyrus quite early and Moses got his education in an Egyptian school. What is more seriously interesting, did Moses actually write in Egyptian or Akkadian?

Best theology comes from God:

Jer 31:33  "But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days," declares Yahweh: "I will put my law in their inward parts and on their hearts I will write it, and I will be to them God, and they themselves will be to me people.

Jer 31:34  And they will no longer teach each one his neighbor, or each one his brother, saying, 'Know Yahweh,' for all of them will know me, from their smallest and up to their greatest," declares Yahweh, "for I will forgive their iniquity and their sin I will no longer remember."

Maybe Paul just contextualizes it, and urges to redeem the culture not aligned with God's truth.
