Eagerly Looking Forward To An Interview On Paul

My friend and co-laborer in the work of the gospel, Henry Neufeld, asked me to participate in a series of interviews he is doing with Energion authors on the apostle Paul. I am very much looking forward to sitting down and answering his questions on Wednesday evening. Curious about the questions? Here they are:
1. What do you regard as the Pauline epistles, i.e., what literature do we have that you are confident was written by the apostle Paul?
2. What weight do you give to Acts of the Apostles in understanding Paul?
3. If you were introducing Paul as the next speaker at a conference, what might you say about him?
4. Imagine we’re living in the first century, I am about to go on a mission trip with Paul, and you were talking privately and confidentially with me. What might you say?
5. What do you think modern interpreters most commonly misunderstand about Paul?
6. What do you regard as Paul’s primary theological sources? What role do you see played by his Jewish background, his knowledge of the Greek world, and his own experiences, especially visionary?
7. What might Paul say to the American church today?
There's is an eighth question, but I won't give it to you just yet. You'll have to stay tuned and watch the interview. Anyone want to take a stab at what I might say in response to question seven above?
