Editorial Reviews

Evangelical Christian Publishers AssocationGold Medallion award for Biography/Autobiography(1979)

Christianity Today
"From one of the best-known evangelical biblical scholars comes yet another excellent volume for our learning. . . This is a book that will be read with profit by all who have an interest in the primitive church—from the armchair student of the Bible to the most advanced biblical scholar. This will certainly remain a standard text for years to come."

Restoration Quarterly
"This work shows depth of study, a familiarity with the important bibliographical material and a fairness in approach, and it provides a wealth of materials not only on Paul and his letters but also on the world of the apostle. . . A valuable addition to any Bible student's library."

Restoration Review
"You are not likely to find anything better on the life and letters of the great apostle. Extravagantly informative. A veritable gold mine of information on Paul, the New Testament, and the early church."

The Christian Century
"F. F. Bruce offers in this illustrated book an exposition of all the primary themes in Paul's thought as these developed in the historical context of his life and travels. A remarkably even and coherent work, Bruce's portrait of Paul is convincing from every vantage point—historical, theological, psychological, personal. . . A balanced and attractive book."

Theology Today
"This study can without doubt be labelled F. F. Bruce's magnum opus. . . It is so rich in acute observation and historical detail that few readers will fail to profit from it."

    An excellent, in-depth, analysis of the world, the vision and the life of Paul. Essential reading for anyone who truly wishes to understand the work of the great apostle.

    Excellent scholarship and well balanced. Bruce is my favorite academic. I learned alot about the journey of Paul that makes sense of the maps you see in Bibles of his missionary journeys. Very clear about what can be known for sure and what is speculation. Rooted in responsible history with the sources well footnoted. Enough theology without becoming pedantic. My only criticism is the lack of any mention of Paul's farewell to the Church at Ephesus; an event that must have been important to him.

    This book is phenomenal. It begins by building a history so that you are not lost about what you are reading. It definitely stretches your vocabulary. The only thing I wish was that the print was a size bigger, but besides that, it's a very good book.

    Did a quick overview and am impressed. Am now in the process of finishing the book and even now can say impressive. F.F. Bruce is the man. His research is more than thorough. He gives much background of the times. I had to look at the cover several times to see the book was about Paul and not the whole culture of the times. It gave tremendous insite and clarified many points of scripture. While Mr. Bruce is no longer with us He'll always be listed among the greats of Christian literature and studies.
