Overview

Saint Paul was not only a religious figure of exceptional power but he was one of the outstanding makers of history. This is the biography of a man who profoundly influenced people of widely divergent beliefs, races and epochs. Without the spiritual earthquake brought about by St Paul, Christianity may never have survived. Yet Paul's importance extends way beyond the religious field. His effect upon Western thought has been immeasurable. This is the man Michael grant describes in his book. Paul's own authentic voice can still be heard in his surviving letters or Epistles, which not only contain numerous autobiographical clues, but are the earliest Christian documents in existence and rank high among the most valuable literature the world has ever produced. Michael Grant considers in detail this extant literature along with the material of Paul's four evangelical journeys and he discusses the reasons for the spectacular conversion on the road to Damascus. As in The Jews of the Roman World and Herod the Great, Michael Grant brings together research on Israel on the one hand and Greece and Rome on the other, believing that it is necessary to study these cultures in conjunction, since Paul was a Jew who wrote in Greek and was a Roman citizen.

    How Not to be a Historian

    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.
