Apostle of the Free Spirit
F.F. Bruce wrote this biography of Paul to share the rewards that he experienced in his study – the rewards that came, he said, because of the warmth of Paul’s personality, his intellectual stature, his message of redeeming grace, and his single-minded devotion to preaching the gospel. The result, says Theology Today, is the magnum opus of F.F. Bruce, one of the best known and most respected biblical scholars.
“Paul’s pre-eminent contribution,” says Bruce, “has been his presentation of the good news of free grace, . . . manifested not only in God’s acceptance of sinners but in the transformation of those thus accepted into the likeness of Christ.”
In this illustrated award-winning biography of Paul – his life, his travels, his writings – Bruce blends theology, history, culture, and an analysis of Paul’s letters to form a balanced and straightforward book.
