Wynne Williams retired from teaching ancient history at Keele University in 1991. He is co-author, with Richard Wallace, of The Acts of the Apostles: A Companion (1993). The world in which early Christianity developed consisted of a complex of distinct communities and cultural 'layers', which interacted with one another, sometimes co-operatively, and sometimes in confrontation.

The world in which early Christianity developed consisted of a complex of distinct communities and cultural 'layers', which interacted with one another, sometimes co-operatively, and sometimes in confrontation.The Three Worlds of Paul of Tarsus explores this world through the life of the apostle Paul, examining the three fundamental cultural 'layers':* the native cultures* the common Hellenistic culture which had been spread in the east as a result of the conquests of Alexander* the culture of the political overlord, Rome.It shows how Paul, as a Jew, a Greek-speaker and a Roman citizen, participates in all of these 'layers'. The authors give an account of the places Paul visited, showing their historical, cultural and political differences and discuss the varied categories, such as religion, philosophy and language, which constituted identity.

This is an excellent book to fill out the background within which Saul of Tarsus - St. Paul - is to be understood. The authors are classical historians who have put a great deal of work into documenting the world of the 1st Century A.D., as it applies to Paul and the rise of early Christianity. The bibliography is thorough and up-to-date, and there is real depth in the information. I found it easy and exciting to read (though I may not be a typical reader!). The major sections - The Geography of Paul's World, Travelling the World, The Native Cultures, Hellenisation in the Near East, Roman Rule in the Near East, The Life of the Polis, and The Individual's Self-Identification - are all good to excellent. The final section on "Paul's Cities", though full of good detail, is inevitably a little "bitsy", and hence a slightly weak ending to the book. Why only four stars? And why "Two and a half of the three worlds of Paul"? Two things would have really helped complete the book. The most important thing is that the book deals excellently with the Roman and Greek "worlds" of Paul, but falls down on the Jewish world. It's good on political and social history, but weak on the history of ideas side. Some treatment of Judaism as a religion in the period, particularly as a background to Paul's ideas, would really have helped. Likewise, it would have helped to deal with some of the cross-disciplinary research that looks at Paul from an anthropological point of view. But that would be icing on the cake of what is already a good book. If you're seriously interested in St. Paul, this is one to get.
