Conybeare and Howson's study on The Life and Epistles of St. Paul is one of the most significant contributions to Pauline scholarship to date. Published over 150 years ago, this work still impacts the way New Testament scholars view the 1st century Christian world. Containing a wealth of historical and context-specific knowledge, The Life and Epistles of St. Paul is a necessary addition to the library of any New Testament student.

NOTE: This work has been reprinted and distributed by Eerdmans Publishers. The edition for sale here is not the Eerdmans edition, otherwise known as the People's Edition. The 2 volume set we feature here contains Conybeare and Howson's original footnotes, complete with Greek and Hebrew quotations, which were abridged in later editions.

“Thus the pious Hebrew was always, as it were, in the attitude of expectation. And it has been well remarked that, while the golden age of the Greeks and Romans was the past, that of the Jews was the future.” (Volume 1, Page 7)

“The religion of Moses was for the use of all and the benefit of all.1 The poorest peasant of Galilee had the same part in it as the wisest Rabbi of Jerusalem. The children of all families were taught to claim their share in the privileges of the chosen people.” (Volume 1, Page 5)

All other books on Paul, while of value in one way or another, must take second place when compared to this one.

It will be readily seen how valuable an auxiliary the present work will be in giving a fuller understanding of the character and writings of the great apostle of the Gentiles.

William John Conybeare (August 1, 1815 - 1857), English divine, son of Dean WD Conybeare, was educated at Westminster and at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he was elected fellow in 1837. From 1842 to 1848 he was principal of the Liverpool Collegiate Institution, which he left for the vicarage of Axminster. He published Essays, Ecclesiastical and Social, in 1856, and a novel, Perversion, or the Causes and Consequences of Infidelity, but is best known as the joint author (with J.S. Howson) of The Life and Epistles of St. Paul (1851). He died at Weybridge in 1857.

John Saul Howson (May 5, 1816-1885), English divine, was born at Giggleswick-on-Craven, Yorkshire. After receiving his early education at Giggleswick School, of which his father was head-master, he went to Trinity College, Cambridge, and there became tutor successively to the marquess of Sligo and the marquess of Lorne. In 1845 Howson, having taken orders, accepted the post of senior classical master at the Liverpool College under his friend W.J. Conybeare, whom he succeeded as principal in 1849.

[Howson's] sympathies were with the evangelical party, and he stoutly opposed the "Eastward position," but he was by no means narrow. He did much to reintroduce the ministry of women as deaconesses. The building of the King's School for boys, and the Queen's School for girls (both in Chester), was due in a great measure to the active interest which he took in educational matters. He died at Bournemouth on the December 15, 1885, and was buried in the cloister garth of Chester.
