Product Description

In this highly engaging book, Peter Walker uses his expertise in biblical studies and his wide experience of leading tours around the Mediterranean to bring the world of Saint Paul vividly to life. Following Luke's account in the book of Acts and using evidence from Paul's own letters, he reconstructs the apostle's wide-ranging travels and describes the many places Paul visited as one might encounter them today. In doing so, Walker helps us to appreciate the issues that Paul confronted and to understand the motivation that drove him on.

Superbly illustrated with color photographs, maps, and street plans, and supplemented with more detailed material in a series of boxed features, In the Steps of Saint Paul offers a splendid, rounded portrait of a most extraordinary man and of the world in which he lived.

Publisher's Description

Tracing the path of Saint Paul, Peter Walker offers an expert exploration of various biblical sites and their contemporary counterparts

Drawing mainly on Luke's account in Acts, as well as on Paul's own letters, Peter Walker reconstructs Paul's wide-ranging travels, detailing some of the most important sites of the early church. We begin in Damascus, then follow Paul on his first and second "missionary journeys," then trace his final visit to Jerusalem and Caesarea, and eventually arrive in Rome. Each chapter focuses on a particular site and includes a section on Paul's story within that location, a list of key dates which give readers an overview of significant events associated with that place, and an exploration of the location as a visitor might encounter it today. Readers are transported to the rugged "Cilician Gates" of southern Turkey, the marketplaces of Athens, Corinth, and Ephesus, the bleak expanses of ancient Galatia, and the wintry, wind-swept shores of Malta.
