Michael Bird, Chris Tilling, Nijay Gupta, Ben Blackwell, Nathan Eubank--take note. If you decide on using a different picture of the Apostle on your future books on Paul, be forewarned that you will risk being marginalized. Go the safe route. Go with the majority opinion. Don't question the emerging consensus on Paul's appearance and opt for a more controversial position.
You've been warned. Your academic credibility is on the line here.
