What motivated the apostle Paul from his Damascus road experience through to the end of his life? That is the question driving this powerfully argued work by leading New Testament scholar Paul Barnett. Dr Barnett proposes that an understanding of Paul's years in Syria-Cilicia is critical for understanding his visit to Jerusalem, the mission to Galatia, the counter-mission of the 'agitators', the dispute with Cephas in Antioch and the implied dispute with James. Read this work and see Galatians in a different light.

COMMENDATIONS
"If you are remotely interested in New Testament Studies, especially the writings of Paul, this is an outstanding book to read. Paul Barnett does an excellent job in casting light on the lengthy period of time the Apostle spent in Syria and Cicilia. While in Syria, Paul formed his theology, which Barnett brings out extremely informatively. Barnett reflects on how Paul would have influenced the writings of Peter and James. This book is stimulating, informative and an invaluable resource. For anyone who takes the New Testament writings of Paul seriously, this book brings it all together and is a must-read."
- Peter Christofides, Dean of Students, Lecturer in New Testament, Vose Seminary, Perth, Western Australia

What drove the apostle Paul from his Damascus road event through to the end of his life? That is the question at the back of this powerfully argued work by a leading New Testament scholar. According to Paul in Syria: The Background to Galatians it was the Spirit-borne relationship with 'Abba, Father' through the radical faith-relationship with the crucified One that goes furthest to accounting for the motivation of this remarkable man as missionary, pastor and theologian. Barnett proposes that an understanding of Paul's years in Syria - Cilicia is critical for understanding the visit to Jerusalem, the mission to Galatia, the counter-mission of the 'agitators', the dispute with Cephas in Antioch and the implied dispute with James. Read this work and see Galatians, perhaps, in a different light.
