The widespread success of Epochs in the Life of Jesus prompted Robertson to offer a treatment of Paul’s life in the same manner. In this companion volume, Robertson does not offer critical or textual discussions. Instead, he gives an honest and constructive account of Paul and his work in Acts and the epistles. Beginning with Paul’s life before his conversion, and chronicling his missionary efforts, arrest, and imprisonment, Robertson approaches Paul using all available resources: his own environment, his intellectual and spiritual reflections, his relation to Jesus, and his literary remains all illustrate the development of his theology and the journeys of his life.

About Archibald Thomas Robertson
Archibald Thomas Robertson was born on November 6, 1863 in Chatham, Virginia, during the height of the Civil War. His family moved to Statesville, North Carolina, where he grew up. He was baptized in 1876 and immediately recognized God’s call to preach, and attended Wake Forest College. Upon graduation in 1885, Robertson entered The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he devoted himself to Greek studies under John Broadus. He was appointed Greek instructor as a student, and received his Th.M. in 1888. Robertson became an associate professor in 1890, and then served as Professor of New Testament Interpretation from 1895 to 1934. He devoted his life to preaching, teaching, scholarly activities, and giving public lectures, many of which have been reproduced in book form in this collection. He was a founding member of the Baptist World Alliance, and participated in numerous Bible conferences with Dwight Moody and F. B. Meyer.
