Paul’s concept of freedom has been grossly misunderstood and misinterpreted over the centuries. This book attempts to find the sources that influence the Apostle in his writings, especially few selected texts on the concept of freedom in order to bring the true meaning of freedom to its original conception. It also assesses few biblical scholars’ views and employs primarily literary criticism or grammatical and exegetical approach to selected passages of Pauline letters to bring to light the true intention of the author and the clear meaning of the texts.This will help readers to find true interpretation of the biblical texts which concern with freedom. The book also underscores that Paul’s concept of freedom when understood in its true meaning can be revolutionary in people’s thinking, relationship, concept of co-existing together, regional or world peace,and will strengthen their social ethics as well.
