On page one of his biography on Paul, N. T. Wright describes the apostle and his work this way:
An energetic and talkative man, not much to look at and from a despised race, went about from city to city talking about the One God and his “son” Jesus, setting up small communities of people who accepted what he said and then writing letters to them, letters whose explosive charge is as fresh today as when they were first dictated.
Come with us as N.T. Wright takes us deep into Acts and Paul’s letters to discover things we have missed about Paul’s Jewish roots, his experience on the Damascus road, and his church-planting and letter-writing travels surviving assassination attempts, imprisonments, and shipwrecks. What kept Paul going? Get the book and start reading. We’ll be moving through Paul: A Biography by N. T. Wright one chapter a week.
