"When he's good he's very good, when he's bad ..." Great on historical and archeological background of Acts. Surprisingly poor on Paul's theology.
Majors on minor issues and ignores major issues. Out of all of Paul's epistles chooses only Ephesians to introduce and discuss. Very idiosyncratic regarding Paul's theology. Read a second time (3/15) and my evaluation is still the same. Great on history, weak on theology.

McRay does an excellent job of covering Paul's life. This book is probably better used as a ref. book rather than a bedtime read... which is the way I read it (strait through). McRay does cover more on page than one could possibly remember which is why it is better used for reference.
