In this highly engaging book, Peter Walker uses his expertise in Biblical studies and his wide experience of leading tours around the Mediterranean to bring the world of Saint Paul vividly to life. Following Luke's account in the Book of Acts and using evidence from Paul's own letters, he reconstructs the apostle's wide ranging travels and describes the many places Paul visited as a visitor might encounter them today. In doing so he helps us to appreciate the issues that Paul confronted and to understand the motivation that drove him on. Superbly illustrated with colour photographs, maps and street plans, and supplemented with more detailed material in a series of boxed features, this book offers a splendid, rounded portrait of a most extraordinary man and of the world in which he lived.

Dr Peter Walker studied Classics and Early Church History at Cambridge University and has done extensive research at post-doctoral level on attitudes to Jerusalem in the time of both the Bible and the Early Church. For many years he taught New Testament Studies at Wycliffe Hall within the University of Oxford and was for five years Professor of Biblical Studies at Trinity School for Ministry, near Pittsburgh in the United States. He has authored a dozen books and written numerous articles on Jesus, the New Testament and the Holy Land today, as well as on issues in the Anglican Communion. Peter is an ordained clergyman in the Church of England and has led guided tours to the lands of the Bible for over 30 years. He and his wife, Georgie, now live back in the UK and have two married children.
