I enjoyed reading this book. It is a biography of Paul the Apostle. Pollock is biographer and wrote this book as a biographer and historian. The New Testament is not written as a biography of Paul, so there are gaps in his life story. Some of those gaps have historical help to fill them and others don’t. Pollock does some speculating to close the gaps and sometimes notes alternative theories. Overall it was a good treatment and a helpful book to personalize Paul a bit.
