Biography of St. Paul, in which the author unfolds his erudition by explaining a great deal of historical details concerning the context in which the Apostle to the Gentiles lived: he describes the cities in which he lived and preached; he characterizes the culture of the time, and so on. Of course, it includes some intuitions or theories, since neither Sacred Scripture, nor Christian Tradition, nor the non-Christian writings of the time answer all the questions that allow us to fully understand the life of this apostle.
He dwells particularly on Paul's travels and preaching. The author presents him as a genius and an extraordinary hero. He does not write a spiritual biography, nor does he enter into theological reflections. For this very reason, it can be very interesting for those who want to better understand the context of St. Paul, narrated in an attractive and entertaining way.
