Paul: A Biography [9780281078752]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

This compelling reconstruction of the life and thought of St Paul paints a vivid picture of the Roman world in which he preached his revolutionary message and explains the significance of his lasting impact on both the Church and the world.

Regarded by many as the founder of Christianity, Paul of Tarsus is one of the most controversial and powerful figures in history. His writings have had an incalculable influence on Western culture and beyond, and his words continue to guide the lives of over two billion Christians across the world today.

In this superbly detailed biography Tom Wright traces Paul's career from zealous persecutor of the fledgling Church, through his journeys as the world's greatest missionary theologian, to his likely death as a Christian martyr at the hands of Nero in the mid 60s AD.

Drawing judiciously on the latest research into the Jewish, Greek and Roman worlds, and enriched by a wealth of critical insight into Paul's own writings, this is the most rounded portrait of the apostle ever painted - his development, motivations, spiritual struggles and intellectual achievements, and his lasting impact over two millennia.


AUTHOR: Tom Wright is Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St Andrews and a world expert on the life and thought of St Paul. His recent books include Spiritual and Religious, The Day the Revolution Began, God in Public, Paul and the Faithfulness of God, Paul and His Recent Interpreters and The Paul Debate (all published by SPCK).
