The apostle Paul and his significance to Christianity is a perennial topic of interest. Few evangelical surveys of his life, however, offer a fully rounded picture of Paul and his world. To fill the void, John McRay offers Paul: His Life and Teaching.
In Paul, John McRay explores the apostle's pre-conversion days, missionary travels, and theological contributions. A specialist in archaeology, the author draws on more than forty years of teaching experience as well as knowledge gained from extensive travels to the places Paul visited. Paul is a comprehensive and readable presentation of Paul's ministry and theology that weaves together historical background, archaeological discoveries, and theological themes into a fascinating picture of Paul and his world. Photos, maps, and diagrams are included.
Paul will be appreciated by a broad spectrum of readers. General readers will gain a deeper understanding of Paul, students will value the book's careful scholarship, and pastors will use it to add fascinating historical insights to their sermons.
