FRANKEN, Chris. Paul coping with external stressors. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2012, vol.68, n.1, pp.165-176. ISSN 2072-8050.
Stress is one of the most prominent sicknesses of the third millennium. This article used the external categories of stress and the heuristic ethical indicators (identity, ethics and ethos) to determine why Paul lived with joy despite of his stressful circumstances. As for people sharing the same Christian identity of the first followers of Jesus, this should be of real significance to the situation of stress in the third millennium.
