A Man in Christ: The Vital Elements of St. Paul's Religion (Paperback)
NOT ON OUR SHELVES- available for order, usually ships in 1-5 days
Minister, teacher and author James Stewart reveals how Paul the Apostle developed the Christian religion in the 1st century AD, shedding light on the emergence of early Christianity. Informed by the author's scholarship, this superb book is based off a series of well-received lectures which the author delivered at the University of Edinburgh. The text is annotated at length, with incidences of the Bible's Greek and references to various sources from previous centuries. The flowing narration of Paul's progression from follower to great herald of Christianity, and the evolution of early Christian doctrines, is complimented in equal measure by the author's gifts for sermon writing and scholarship. Given that he is addressing events that took place millennia ago, Stewart takes care not to stray to rigidity or supposition: it is simply a fact that the history and records of the time have their limitations. The chief sources, for their authority, consist of the New Testament, including the Gospels of Jesus.
