The Paul Page was founded in 1999 by Mark M. Mattison. Originally designed as a personal web site “dedicated to the new perspective on Paul,” it quickly grew to include a wide variety of resources.
The Paul Page was an early pioneer of topic-based internet resources on biblical theology, combining the functionality of a “gateway” (a site filled with off-site links) with original featured content (including articles and book reviews) and an electronic bookstore. The combination of these features made The Paul Page a comprehensive one-stop resource on the new perspective on Paul. The editorial decision to include material critical of the new perspective enhanced its usefulness.
For ten years, Mattison struggled to keep pace with the changing technology and explosion of relevant on-line material, as well as the evolving landscape of Pauline studies. In 2009 he entered into a partnership with Logos Bible Software, which redesigned the site as part of the “family” of the newly-redesigned New Testament Gateway sites. With the facelift The Paul Page expanded its scope beyond the new perspective on Paul, thanks to the help of a new editorial team.
