Sanders - Paul

E. P. Sanders - Paul: the Apostle's Life, Letters, and Thought
This book has been written over a long stretch of time. When I finished Judaism: Practice and Belief in 1991 (published 1992), I had published a book a year for four years: Studying the Synoptic Gospels (with Margaret Davies) in 1989; Jewish Law from Jesus to the Mishnah in 1990; Paul: Past Master in 1991; the aforementioned Judaism: Practice and Belief in 1992. I planned to write a book on Jesus and one on Paul for the elusive “ordinary reader.” I managed to complete The Historical Figure of Jesus in 1993 (published 1994), and I promised the publishers a similar book on Paul in the near future.
I knew that I was tired, but I was used to working hard when tired, and so for a while it seemed possible. But I was thoroughly used up; my brain did not want to work properly; my back resented my sitting at the keyboard for hours on end; and my energy declined. I reluctantly decided to save the “little” book on Paul until I retired, as I expected to do in the next two or three years.
I wrote little bits of the book from time to time. In 2005, when I finally retired, I sat down to write it. My brain still resisted. I went into a post-retirement slump, lacking ambition and vitality. A series of health issues arose in 2008, a year spent mostly in doctors’ offices—or so it seemed at the time. I considered asking a former student to finish the book, but I found that giving it up was even harder than working on it. Finally, in 2013, I regained enough of my energy to make my brain work and to sit at the keyboard for several hours a day.
