Since the Protestant Reformation, Paul has been largely understood as the original framer of Christian doctrine and as a controversial historical figure. Griffith-Jones reveals his true mission as a passionate advocate of the liberating power of Jesus, driven to convert everyone he could reach to experience a radical conversion like the one he himself experienced. He confronts and debunks recent allegations about Paul being an anti-Semitic Jew, a homophobic gay man, or one who regarded women and slaves as second-class citizens before God and the community. Here is a portrait of the real Paul--the man whose aim was nothing less than to deliver the compelling message of Jesus to the world.
In this compelling portrait of Paul the man, his message, and his world, Robin Griffith-Jones reveals the apostle as a brilliantly entrepreneurial witness to the transforming presence of Jesus himself. This groundbreaking book unlocks Paul′s letters, revealing their purpose and power as never before.
Robin Griffith-Jones taught New Testament for several years at Oxford University and is currently a visiting lecturer at King's College, London University. He serves in one of the most historic positions in the Anglican Church, that of Master of the Temple in London, the famous church of the Knights Templar (www.templechurch.com). Griffith-Jones is the author of The Four Witnesses (on the four gospels), The Gospel According to Paul, and The Da Vinci Code and the Secrets of the Temple.
