Calvin Roetzel (Macalester College), a veteran interpreter of Paul, constructs a lively and reliable-though not rait that dovetails with his widely used textbook on the letters of Paul. His extensive familiarity with scholarly, especially German, views is reflected in sensible evaluations of recent studies and relevant older views. Roetzel sketches a critical basis succinctly in chapter 1 ("the early Paul"), beginning with the relation between Paul's letters and Acts (he "relies more heavily on information from Paul's letters," but accepts Acts where its "material does not reflect Lucan theology. contradict Paul's letters" ).

Three persons named James are mentioned in the New Testament, and it has been a question which of these persons was the author of our Epistle. Some have thought that the author was James, the brother of John and the son of Zebedee; but this seems quite impossible, because he suffered martyrdom in the year 44, before the dispersion of the Jewish Christians which is mentioned in its opening words. It was after this James, the brother of John, was slain, and largely because of his death, that members of the church fled from Jerusalem and made their way beyond the bounds of Palestine

Characterizes the most influential apostle of the early Christian church as an evangelist anxious about the welfare of his churches; a theologian facing fierce opposition; a missionary at the mercy of the elements; and a man suffering physical assaults, slander, and imprisonment. Also contrasts the depiction in the Bible by presenting him as physically weak, even sickly, and a letter writer and preacher unskilled in speech. Annotation c.

This is a good read. The author does a good job of filling in the gaps of Paul's early life that are not highly publicized and well known.
