Perhaps you have already seen this book. I don't know whether it

I have read this book. As I recall it deals with Paul's intentional use 
of patterns, such as chiasmus, to aid his hearers' understanding. I 
think these patterns would indicate careful composition (at least at the 
outline level) rather than spontaneous speech.
