Paul is a crucial figure for understanding Christian belief. His writings form a major part of the New Testament, and his mission journeys took the Christian faith beyond the Jewish community to the world at large.
This lively and thorough account of his achievements follows the course of his life. Within that framework each of his letters is given extended analysis. Photographs, maps and charts help to bring the first century alive. Special articles on topics of more academic interest meet the syllabus requirements of the major examination boards.
With its awareness of current scholarship, exciting presentation, and faithfulness to historical detail and the New Testament text, this book will be stimulating and informative for both the individual reader and for schools.
