Rt. Rev. Joseph Hozner’s extensive biography of St. Paul is rigorously based on biblical and other sources. The reader’s attention is drawn to the Apostle’s Christian virtues, to his faithful response to the divine call, his union with God, and his apostolic spirit in tackling every difficulty. Pauline doctrine is described within the context of the culture in which it was developed; this is the key to a deeper understanding of the Letters of St. Paul. PAUL OF TARSUS, first published in 1944, has proved to be very popular with anyone who wishes to know the man, the challenges faced by the early Christians, and to visualize how the Gospel message spread outside Jerusalem.
