From The Publisher:

Evidence and Paul's Journeys is an historical investigation into the travels of the Apostle Paul.

This compact book of 168 pages examines many dozens of statements contained in the book of Acts, and Paul’s letters, that can be compared to evidence found in independent historical sources.

This evidence includes:
  • city, regional, and provincial political boundaries and titles, some of which existed only in the middle of the first century, the era of Paul’s travels.
  • social and political characteristics unique to the cities and provinces that Paul visited.
  • archeological findings that have a bearing on the biblical narrative.
  • distances that Paul traveled on land and on sea, and how long it took to cover those distances, according to the scriptures and to ancient and modern testimony.
  • meteorological and nautical evidence relevant to Paul’s travels by sea, including the spectacular confirmation of the details surrounding his shipwreck at Malta.
  • Paul’s arrests and trials, and the legal maneuverings that took place in quite different jurisdictions, studied in the light of evidence about ancient law.
  • Paul’s dealings with noted individuals who are also written about in pagan and Jewish historical accounts.
  • a comprehensive examination of the complex evidential relation between Paul’s letters and the book of Acts.
For the first time, all the historical details of Paul’s journeys are found in a single book that is written for the general reader.


Jefferson White's Evidence and Paul's Journeys: An Historical Investigation Into The Travels Of The Apostle Paul is a comprehensive guide and a fascinating survey to Paul's travels for the purpose of spreading the message that the Messiah had arrived and his name was Jesus. Written specifically for the non-specialist general reader, Evidence and Paul's Journeys is a complete and detailed examination of the historical evidence for Paul's journeys and related activities in founding and advising Christian communities. Very highly recommended for personal, small group, and parochial school studies, each evidential point presented in Evidence and Paul's Journeys is scrupulously footnoted to a comprehensive and scholarly appendix that aptly serves as a basis for further study making it ideal for personal and small group New Testament studies.
—Bookwatch April, 2001

"It is very encouraging to see that the most recent research that is not readily available to the Christian who is nevertheless keen to place the Book of Acts in its first-century setting has been so carefully gathered together and presented in such a readable form. Jefferson White is to be commended for rendering such a service and his book deserves a wide audience.
—Dr. Bruce Winter, Warden of Tyndale House, Cambridge Series Editor of the six volume study The Book of Acts In Its First Century Setting

When I received Evidence and Paul's Journeys in the mail, I planned on skimming it for a minute or two and putting it on the shelf. That was a big mistake. Once I began, I could not put it down. The book encouraged my soul, not only about the historical facticity of the book of Acts, but also in making the events vivid and real. An open minded skeptic would benefit from this book and a convinced believer will enjoy the reality it breathes into the Acts narrative.
—J. P. Moreland, Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University and author of - Love Your God With All Your Mind: The Role of Reason in the Life of the Soul
