The Genius of Paul: A Study in History

Excerpt

In writing this book, I have had in mind an audience of intelligent laymen. Consequently, I have made two deliberate omissions. I have left out an over-elaborate focusing on details which are both minor and in dispute. It is in such focusing, though necessary for scholars, that the general reader may lose his view of the whole picture. The second omission deals with matters which are somewhat larger than mere details. It can be typified in my treatment of the accounts of Paul's travels. Paul's itinerary is in parts obscure, and the accounts are inconsistent and faulty. Yet, even if they were fully clear, his precise travels would scarcely deeply concern us. It is sufficient for our purposes to know about these travels only in broad terms and to understand their significance.

Accordingly, I have included in this study only those considerations about Paul which were truly of enough moment to reveal his character.
