IN THE STEPS OF ST PAUL
Drawing mainly on Luke's account in Acts, as well as on Paul's own letters, Peter Walker reconstructs Paul's wide-ranging travels, detailing some of the most important sites of the early church. We begin in Damascus, then follow Paul on his first and second 'missionary journeys', then trace his final visit to Jerusalem and Caesarea, and eventually arrive in Rome. Each chapter focuses on a particular site and includes: an opening section telling Paul's story within that location; a list of key dates giving readers an overview of significant events associated with that place; and a final section exploring the location as a visitor might encounter it today. Readers are transported to the rugged 'Cilician Gates' of southern Turkey, the market places of Athens, Corinth and Ephesus, the bleak expanses of ancient Galatia, and the wintry, wind-swept shores of Malta.
