How Paul Changed the World

Tom Holland and Tom Wright, both accomplished historians of the ancient Roman world, have a fascinating discussion on how Paul, a figure unknown or if known most likely reviled in his own time, surprisingly ended up revolutionising the world, so deeply and thoroughly that today we are completely unaware of his impact even though our world is indelibly shaped by it.

Here is the article Tom Holland wrote that he earlier referred to and here you can find Wright’s latest book, a biography of Paul. For more on the strange impact of Christianity in the ancient world and its ripple effects into the modern world I recommend the work of Larry Hurtado which you can find here along with other helpful resources on the matter.
