St. Paul: A Study in Social and Religious History


Hodder and Stoughton 1912

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In this significant account of the life and teaching of St. Paul, Deissmann set the standard for Pauline studies in the early 20th century. Separating assumptions from facts on Paul, he focuses on historical context and New Testament studies to reveal an accurate and in-depth study. Deissmann examines several different aspects of Paul’s character, such as his lineage, conversion, apostleship, and historical context. Included are extensive indexes, preface, a detailed table of contents, and a map of the ancient world. Deissman’s conversational yet highly academic style makes St. Paul: A Study in Social and Religious History the perfect resource for students and pastors.
