Overview

Saint Paul was not only a religious figure of exceptional power, but an outstanding maker of history. Without his efforts, Christianity would probably never have survived. Paul's own authentic voice can still be heard in his surviving letters and epistles, and it comes across here, along with his four evangelical journeys and the reasons for his spectacular conversion on the road to Damascus. His effect on Western thought has been immeasurable. "...never fails to be lively and well-informed..."—Sunday Times. "...Grant is justly recognized as an expert and civilized guide to the ancient world."—Economist. 5 3/8 X 8 1/2.

I read this for a book club and we all had about the same opinion. The book was inconsistant, something stated on one page would be contradicted half a chapter later. This seemed to be more a collection of opinions and wishful thinking than anything based on hard fact, excavation or anything else. None of us would recommend it as having anything to do with a true understanding of St. Paul.
