The Apostle Paul. Author of 13 New Testament books and the central figure in the book of Acts, he was the individual most responsible for spreading the gospel in the first century.

In this carefully researched book, Hiebert surveys scriptural data and illuminates the ''prominent personalities'' and ''lesser lights'' who lived in Paul's shadow, demonstrating how each contributed to his life and ministry. 261 pages, softcover from Bob Jones University Press.
