Excerpt from Paul the Mystic: A Study in Apostolic Experience

In the Lives of Paul which have appeared - and their name is legion, - scant justice has been done to the mystical element in his religious experience and in his teaching. And yet nothing is more characteristic of Paul than his mysticism. Although not liking him any the better for it, Professor A. B. Bruce frankly admits that "he was a man of profoundly mystical religious temperament." He was the kind of man who could not be content to dwell on the outside of reUgion, but sought to reach that which was furthest within. He is generally thought of merely as a consummate logician - a skilful system-builder. He was much more than that. He was first of all a poet, and afterwards a logician. He writes with the exuberant imagination of a true Oriental, often sublimely indifferent to logical sequence, and displaying a subtilty of thought incomprehensible to the mere grammarian or textual critic.
