St Paul was one of the most influential figures in the early Church.

But who was he?

And why was he so important?

William Mitchell Ramsay, one of the twentieth century’s foremost scholars on the early church, here uncovers the real story of St Paul.

Ramsay charts his journey from Antioch to Galatia, Asia Minor to Macedonia, his shipwreck off Malta to his final years in Rome.

Using archaeological evidence to further understand the writings of the New Testament allows Ramsay to gain a new layer of meaning behind Paul’s work.

Although Paul was never one of the original Twelve Apostles he used his status as a Jew and a Roman to talk to wide audiences across the Mediterranean and brought Christianity to a larger number of people in the 1st century AD.

Paul’s influence over the early church was immense, and fourteen of the twenty-seven books in the New Testament have traditionally been attributed to Paul.

He continues to be a revered figure of the Christian faith as his continue to be vital roots of the theology, worship, and pastoral life in the Catholic and Protestant traditions of the West, and the Orthodox traditions of the East.

St Paul the traveller and Roman Citizen is a fascinating biography of one the most influential people the world has ever seen.

William Mitchell Ramsay (15 March 1851 – 20 April 1939) was a Scottish archaeologist and New Testament scholar. By his death in 1939 he had become the foremost authority of his day on the history of Asia Minor and a leading scholar in the study of the New Testament. His other works include The Church in the Roman Empire, The Letters to the Seven Churches and Was Christ born at Bethlehem?
