Except for Christ himself, no figure has been more influential in the history of Christianity than the apostle Paul. And yet his remarkable life remains shrouded in mystery. In this probing new book, John B. Polhill scrapes away the myths about this great man and uncovers the truth of his life and thought. Using Acts, the Pauline epistles, and reliable traditions from non-canonical sources, Polhill weaves together the remarkable story of Paul's transformation from persecutor to persecuted, producing a dynamic account of his entire ministry. By placing each of Paul's letters in its proper historical context, Polhill brings new light to these foundation stones of the Christian faith. He follows Paul from his early years in Tarsus and Jerusalem to his imprisonment and eventual martyrdom, painting a detailed, comprehensive portrait of Paul that will serve as an indispensable resource for students, teachers, and pastors alike.... 5 and the Muratorian Canon indicate that Paul also worked for a while in Spain during this period, although we have no early narratives dealing with a Spanish mission. ... a still later period, that of a second Roman imprisonment, when Paula#39;s prospects were far more ominous and another release was unlikely. ... A long dry spell and a strong breeze combined to envelop much of the city in flames.
