In this highly engaging book, Peter Walker uses his expertise in Biblical studies and his wide experience of leading tours around the Mediterranean to bring the world of Saint Paul vividly to life. Following Luke's account in the Book of Acts and using evidence from Paul's own letters, he reconstructs the apostle's wide ranging travels and describes the many places Paul visited as a visitor might encounter them today. In doing so he helps us to appreciate the issues that Paul confronted and to understand the motivation that drove him on. Superbly illustrated with colour photographs, maps and street plans, and supplemented with more detailed material in a series of boxed features, this book offers a splendid, rounded portrait of a most extraordinary man and of the world in which he lived.
