Description

St Paul has had a huge impact on Christian history. In this book, Stephen Tomkins gives us a lively and accessible introduction to Paul's life. He paints a vivid picture of the world into which Paul was born - the Graeco-Roman culture and the Jewish religion and customs. He shows what the early church was like before Paul's conversion, and then tells the dramatic story of Paul's experience on the Damascus Road followed by his missionary journeys and disputes with fellow leaders. He also traces the changes in Paul's thinking and poses the question - did Paul rewrite Christianity? This fascinating book takes account of the latest biblical and historical scholarship, presenting a vivid portrait of Paul and the world in which he lived.show more
