A fascinating account of the life of St Paul, by the world's foremost religious historian. 'Karen Armstrong is a genius' A. N. Wilson

About the Author

Karen Armstrong is one of the world's leading commentators on religious affairs. She spent seven years as a Roman Catholic nun in the 1960s, but then left her teaching order in 1969 to read English at St Anne's College, Oxford. In 1982, she became a full-time writer and broadcaster. She is a bestselling author of over twenty-five books. An accomplished writer and passionate campaigner for religious liberty, Armstrong has addressed members of the United States Congress and the Senate and has participated in the World Economic Forum.

Reviews

Armstrong rescues her subject from two-dimensional caricature and helps us see just why generations have needed Paul to "think with", not just about God, but about the possible shapes of human community in the face of unthinking conformism and the powerful stupidity of empires. -- Rowan Williams * New Statesman *
A compelling interpretation of the importance of this most prominent of early Christian figures... Absorbing and informative * Irish Times *
Balanced and well informed * New York Review of Books *
