Who was the real Paul? Some of Paul’s contemporaries seem to have asked the same question. For some he was Paul the tentmaker. For others he was Paul the heretic, Paul the peripatetic philosopher, Paul the would-be apostle, Paul the prophet, or Paul the founder of Christian communities and missionary hero. For over a decade there has been a renewed quest for the real Paul behind the Acts of the Apostles and the collection of Pauline letters. In this 300-page hardbound book, Ben Witherington takes the reader on an exploratory tour and reappraisal of the historical Paul. “The Paul Quest” is a sweeping survey of the contemporary rediscovery of the Jew from Tarsus.
