Reviewed in the United States on March 24, 2018
Wright has knocked it out of the park with this book. There's a lot more than dates and places as Wright digs into the culture and customs in which Paul would have found himself. Many biographers seem to feel that they need to make the subject of their book appear to be a saint. Wright has painted Paul as a human being: sometimes kind and loving, sometimes angry, and often coming across as arrogant.
I especially appreciated the way the Wright used Paul's letters to give more insight into Paul the Apostle, and Paul the Man.
This book definitely gives me a new insight into reading and understanding the Pauline letters.
