A detailed and thorough examination of Paul, his life, and teachings with black and white pictures and maps inserted throughout the text. However, the photos are really crummy, even for 1995. I did appreciate the maps and the timeline of Paul's life. Aug 16, 2011 Chuck Bonadies rated it liked it.

A detailed and thorough examination of Paul, his life, and teachings with black and white pictures and maps inserted throughout the text. Boyd's book was an interesting book. I enjoyed his insight on the life of Paul. I did find one problem with his book. Towards the end, he starts using his imagination to fill in the blanks on Paul's life. He added an extra mission trip which the Bible does not include. Other than that I enjoyed the Book. I would recommend this book to any person that is interested in a detailed book on the life of Paul.

Paul, The Apostle - His Life and Times. One weakness of this book is that its exegesis is not always accurate. What he says is almost always good and true, but sometimes the verses he bases his teaching on are not a good foundation for the lesson he is building

Paul, The Apostle - His Life and Times. What he says is almost always good and true, but sometimes the verses he bases his teaching on are not a good foundation for the lesson he is building. It would be great as a devotional since most chapters are between two and four pages long.

This book is a controversial new biography of the apostle Paul that argues for his inclusion in the pantheon of key .

It first provides a critical reassessment of the apostle's life in its historical context that focuses on Paul's discourse of authority, which was both representative of its Roman context and provocative to his rivals within Roman society.

Liberty's Apostle tells his life story through his published works and, fully for the first time, his now published correspondence with a host of eighteenth century celebrities. The life revealed is of a truly remarkable Welshman and, as Condorcet remarked, of 'one of the formative minds' of the eighteenth century Enlightenment.

The second is his proposal that Paul ought to be seen fundamentally as a Roman historical figure, comparable to other such figures (Alexander the Great, Cleopatra, Augustus, and so on; p. 1). In both of these contributions to the field of Pauline studies, Harrill consciously opposes what he refers to as popular presentations of Paul and his writings in "Western culture" (p. xii). Harrills book is laid out in two sections. At the same time, he incorporates recent scholarly insights into Paul's "conversion" (pp. 32-38), his (possible) pharisaic view with respect to Gentiles (pp. 28-32), and the "social psychology" of early Christianity communities (pp. 51-53).

Saint Paul the Apostle, one of the early Christian leaders, often considered to be the most important person after Jesus in the history of Christianity. Of the 27 books of the New Testament, 13 are traditionally attributed to Saint Paul, though several may have been written by his disciples.

Wat!?
Boyd's got an obvious bias, which precludes his analysis of some interesting facets of Paul's life and teaching. Keep that in mind while you're reading. The text isn't stellar, but it's adequate. The illustrations in the book are almost maddening - rather than giving descriptive details or telling where the images came from, the "credit" is, "Provided by Robert T. Boyd." That's, frankly, annoying. If you're going to include illustrations they should be relevant to the text, and the caption should give some indication as to what they are and why they are included. I am a visual person - I admit it - I LIKE pictures in my books. I'm a journalist, too, and it's irritating to see someone stick pictures in a book just to fill up the pages. Leave the pictures out and save a tree or two. Which is why the book gets three stars from me.

Boyd provides an engaging historical account of the Apostle Paul's life and ministry. There are numerous maps, charts, and other extras tthat make this a must for anyone studying Paul.
