This is a superb book for historically based study and teaching.
While obviously completely sympathetic to St Paul's place in the Christian tradition, the author aims to examine the setting of Paul's activities within the real political geography of the ancient world. In particular he draws on Paul's autobiographical accounts as expressed in the Epistles (for argument's sake), to re-evaluate the evidence of Acts. He shows that although Luke is often taken as the primary source for Paul's biography, there are many instances where his later and non-Judaic viewpoint colours his evidence. A truly fascinating read.

An amazing insight into the life of St. Paul and how to understand his writings in the context of the society of the time.
