The apostle’s journey
The apostle who made a miraculous conversion from zealous Pharisee persecutor to devoted follower of Christ, Paul has exerted a profound influence on Christianity—but renowned New Testament scholar N. T. Wright argues that the focus on his letters and theology have obscured the essence of the man and the times in which he lived.
Wright contends that to know Paul requires an understanding of his Jewish heritage. Revealing the nuances of a complex society—Jewish and non-Jewish communities coexisting within the Roman Empire—he brings to life the human and intellectual drama that shaped Paul’s writings, thoughts, and ideas.
Christianity’s greatest theologian emerges here as a full-blooded figure and a quintessential product of his times.
