Winner of Biblical Archaeology Society Award - Best New Testament
Book "We are left to construct a portrait of Paul with only scraps
of what was once a large and imposing canvas - a small collection
of letters and a historical narrative written a generation after
his death. This reconstruction focuses on important parts of the
image that usually fall in the shadows, parts dealing with Paul's
sexual asceticism, his preoccupation with holiness - holy Spirit,
holy community, and holy ethos - the evolution of his theology, and
his emergence as a legendary figure. Although I have tried to
follow the strict rules of historical investigation, of necessity
much guesswork is involved in any exploration of Paul's life... All
of these efforts are attempts to deal with the gaps in the text,
understood in the broadest sense to include not just Paul's written
words but also the culture, social world, and political realities
surrounding them. - From the Introduction
