When Paul Met Socrates
A Discussion Involving a Number of People in Athens in 52 a.d., based on the facts of history.
“But did Paul meet Socrates?” a young man asked me when he heard what my subject was. Don’t think it strange. Of course we know that two men who lived more than four centuries apart couldn’t have met. But in schools, for decades now, students have had the vague idea that Socrates and Paul both lived in the olden days, long ago, goodness knows when and so perhaps they did meet. Our subject naturally refers to a spiritual encounter and this has, indeed, taken place. What do we mean by that? We explain in this little book.
