Book Review: Paul the Apostle

Paul the Apostle

This book is excellent for a thorough look at the life of the Apostle Paul and a detailed examination of his writings. There is a list of his letters chronologically, and outlines of the structure of his major writings. Reading this book was the culmination of a year long study of this man for me, and so I read this with more recent familiarity of his work than some might bring to it.

I give this text five stars for the high quality of dispassionate, unbiased information, but with a note that its presentation was drier reading than I would have normally undertaken. One is certainly left with an appreciation of this man’s contribution!

For example, consider this quote from the book:

“The Christian movement… in 35 A.D. … would have appeared to a superficial observer to be a Jewish sect. Thirty years later, it was plainly a world religion, which to almost as great an extent as any historical movement can be ascribed to one man, was the work of Paul.”

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
