5.0 out of 5 stars The Little Jewish Tentmaker 22 Jun. 2011
By K. Neil Earle - Published on

Please don't tell me that William Barclay's excellent 183 page introductory to the great Saint Paul the Apostle is out of print. We here in Glendora, CA are trying to line up Christian books for our after-church Book Club and this would be a great addition. William Barclay of course is the now-deceased author of fifty books, most famously including The Daily Study Bible which surveys and expounds upon the books of our New Testament (NT) amplified by Barclay's mastery of NT Greek and his wide learning. His education was the kind people of his generation took for granted--quoting Homer and the Greeks or English poets when it would illustrate what a NT word or concept meant. Indeed, his expository references may be too learned for modern readers and I believe the series is now in need of revision.

A Scotsman once wrote me about going to school with Barclay and how his life changed when a certain Greek teacher came to town and dazzled Barclay with what would be his calling--making the results of Biblical Scholarship explainable to the average man. In "Ambassador for Christ" Barclay is at his clear, clever, concise best. He credits Paul with changing Christianity from a Palestinian-based reform of Judaism to a cosmopolitan religion able to go toe to toe with the philosophers of Athens. His quotes from an early document that describes Paul as "of little stature, thin-haired upon the head, with eyebrows meeting" gets the average reader off to a great pictorial start. Barclay excels in the historic and geographic touches that make the First Century world live--Corinth is the City of the Two Seas while Ephesus is "the Vanity Fair of Asia Minor" and Athens is a city of "mental aristocrats." He enters into his subject's mind when he shows Paul maybe having "tremors in his heart" when he arrives, under guard, to face Nero and glimpsing the mighty Roman fleet at anchor in Puteoli--"the Liverpool of Italy."

There's never a dull moment, folks, and Barclay's attention to Luke's eye for minute historic detail does much to confirm in the minds of simpler folk such as myself the essential veracity of Scripture. Come on SCM Press, Zondervan, get this book out again, British references and all. Need an editor? I'll do it for free--who wouldn't?

This was a book I had read years ago, and I feel it is a very good source for anyone who wants to understand the Apostle Paul. I frankly had difficulty with some of his words and attitudes, but felt that I "knew" him better after reading this book. Thanks to Amazon I was able to find and replace my lost copy of the book.
