Item description for Paul Between Damascus and Antioch: The Unknown Years by Martin Hengel, John John Bowden & Anna Maria Schwemer...

What happened between Paul's conversion on the road to Damascus and his first missionary journey to Antioch? During these crucial years Paul rethought the implications of Christ's life in light of the Old Testament in ways that have since become normative. Well-researched and thought-provoking.

Publishers Description

A fresh exploration of Paul's activities during the hidden years of his life, from his conversion in Damascus to his familiar ministry in the book of Acts. With an unparalled wealth of historical material and a reconsideration of Paul's own writings, a new picture of Paul's life emerges.

Reviews - What do customers think about Paul Between Damascus and Antioch?

Bad translation  Mar 20, 2008
This book was apparently written in German and then translated into english. And it certainly reads as clearly as any instruction manual transled from Japanese. After struggling through the first chapter, I just put it down.
Hengel is matchless  Aug 12, 2000
Dr. Martin Hengel is currently the top NT historian alive in the eyes of many NT authorities. Here he is at his best. This rich treatment of Pual's early history as a convert has already made a huge impact on Pauline studies around the globe. Hengel's capacity to surface an authentic sketch of earliest Christian history and issues related to first century Judaism sets the standard for leading edge NT scholarship. I recommend this book very highly for anyone serious about the subject matter.

Greek language skills are recommended, but perhaps not necessary.

This book is not primarily about Paul  Jan 26, 2000
The title of this book, "Paul Between Damascus and Antioch", is a little misleading. This book is not nearly as much about Paul as it is about earliest Christianity.

Hengel explores the first 15-20 years of the Christian movement in great detail. Unlike many scholars today, Hengel gives the book of Acts a great deal of respect as a reliable source of historical information for this era. This aspect was refreshing.

Unfortunately, I did not come away from this book with the belief that I had learned much of anything about the person of Paul. However, I did learn a great deal about the Christian movement in the 30's and 40's C.E.

A basic knowledge of Greek vocabulary would be beneficial to the reader of this book, but its certainly not necessary. You can know nothing of the Greek language and still learn much.

A much superior book on Paul is by F.F. Bruce entitled, "Paul - Apostle of the Heart Set Free".
