Chesterton presents an unconventional case for orthodoxy in his inimitable style; the discussion here might be described as psychological natural theology.

Furnish presents a compact summary of Paul's theology.

von Campenhausen, The Fathers of the Greek Church
A brief survey of fathers such as Chrysostom, Justin the Martyr, Origen, and Eusebius.

Witherington, Ben, Paul's Narrative Thought World: the Tapestry of Tragedy and Triumph (P)
This is a extensive examination of the epistles of Paul that reveals the underlying, implicit narrative or story upon which Paul's theology is based. It presents Pauline theology in the language of current literary theory. Best line:
"For Paul, religion was grace and ethics was gratitude."
