Paul of Tarsus


In stock

In Paul of Tarsus, Joseph Holzner weaves together the New Testaments often sketchy information about the life and mission of St. Paul into a unified and inspiring biography.With a novelists ability to take you into a scene and a historians rigorous concern for accuracy, he traces this noble Apostles life from his early years as a disciple of the celebrated rabbi Gamaliel through his zealous persecution of the Church as a Pharisee, through his miraculous conversion, his tireless efforts to spread the Gospel, and his martyrs death in imperial Rome.Along the way, he provides instructive background information about the religious and social situation of Pauls times and the circumstances of his New Testament epistles.Here, then, is a complete and enlightening introduction to the man for whom to live is Christ, to die is gain.
