Product Description

In this probing work, John B. Polhill scrapes away the myths about this great man and uncovers the truth of his life and thought. Using Acts, the Pauline epistles, and reliable traditions from non-canonical sources, Polhill weaves together the remarkable story of Paul's transformation from persecutor to persecuted, producing a dynamic account of his entire ministry. By placing each of Paul's letters in its proper historical context, Polhill brings new light to these foundation stones of the Christian faith. He follows Paul from his early years in Tarsus and Jerusalem to his imprisonment and eventual martyrdom, painting a detailed, comprehensive portrait of Paul.

John B. Polhill is the professor of New Testament at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky. He is the author of the Acts volume in the New American Commentary, along with numerous articles, reference works, and symposia.

Publisher's Description

Except for Christ himself, no figure has been more influential in the history of Christianity than the apostle Paul. And yet his remarkable life remains shrouded in mystery. In this probing new book, John B. Polhill scrapes away the myths about this great man and uncovers the truth of his life and thought.

Using Acts, the Pauline epistles, and reliable traditions from non-canonical sources, Polhill weaves together the remarkable story of Paul's transformation from persecutor to persecuted, producing a dynamic account of his entire ministry. By placing each of Paul's letters in its proper historical context, Polhill brings new light to these foundation stones of the Christian faith. He follows Paul from his early years in Tarsus and Jerusalem to his imprisonment and eventual martyrdom, painting a detailed, comprehensive portrait of Paul that will serve as an indispensable resource for students, teachers, and pastors alike.

    This is one awesome book. So full of details. You must sit down with this book and your Bible, and start at the beginning and work to the end, scripture by scripture. The notes I have filled into my Bible, from this book is amazing. I am so blessed to have this book. I truly belive it is a must for all those wanting to learn about Paul, the Apostle, and his life and journey for his Lord Jesus Christ. Before you know it, you will be on his journey with him.God BlessBob Hendrickson

    This is an outstanding introduction to the works of Paul. Though the author specifically claims that this is not a life of Paul, one can nevertheless find Paul's life through Acts and his letters/epistles to the churches. Well-written, thorough and exceptional footnotes for the more interested.
