Paul of Tarsus: A First Century Radical

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
This book looks at the radical Jew of the First Century who challenged the status quo.
Including useful maps it should appeal to the general reader who wants to learn about the man from Tarsus from a historical perspective rather than the more usual avenue, through Scripture. More

About Anne Davison

Anne Davison left school at 16 with no academic qualifications and worked as a secretary. When her youngest child started school she decided to return to learning. At 42 she followed a distance learning course and after ten months passed English and History GCE Level. This whetted her appetite for more. She then signed up as a mature student and followed a degree course in History and Religious Studies and at 60 she was awarded a PhD.
Since that time she has lectured in History around the world on many cruise ships. She also regularly gives talks to academic institutions and groups in the UK.
Many people who have heard her lecture have asked if she has ever written a book. In response she has wrote her first book, From the Medes to the Mullahs, which is based on a series of lectures. Since her passion for history is undiminished, and she is enjoying this new world of writing, she has since written three more books: Paul of Tarsus, a First Century Radical; Holy Roman Empire, Power Politics Papacy and her latest, Abraham's Children, Jew Christian Muslim: Commonality and Conflict.

Reviews

Review by: Nicholas Henderson on Oct. 10, 2013 :
I like this book very much. A lot has been written about St Paul most of which is unintelligible, too long or frankly boring. This 'In brief' series addresses all these problems for busy people like me. I particularly like the maps as well, they are very useful for giving the geograpical/historical context.
