After Jesus had done his main work on earth and had returned to his Father, the total number of his followers amounted to 120 people... How did that little band of 120 simple people become part of a vast multitude of Christians? "The explanation of this amazing increase," writes Professor Barclay, "is none other than Paul." In this stimulating book the story of the pure-blooded Jew, Pharisee, Roman citizen, persecutor of Christians, dramatically converted into the first and greatest Christian missionary, is told with great force. The reader is made to feel the stresses and strains of life in first century Asia Minor and the Mediterranean, especially as they affected small Christian communities. Here one can appreciate the stature of the apostle Paul as he overcame his physical handicap to bring the gospel of Jesus to the centre of the known world.

William Barclay

1907 - 1978

William Barclay once said that his life's aim was to help new generations "to know better their Bible, their God and their Saviour".

The words and works of this great communicator of the Gospel inspire and sustain the Christian faith of thousands all over the world.

Born in Wick, Barclay studied at the University of Glasgow before becoming a Church of Scotland minister in 1933. He returned to the university as a lecturer in New Testament language and literature in 1947 and was appointed Professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism in 1963.
