“Except for the Lord Himself, no single figure has done more for the Christian faith.”
If you want to understand Christianity, you need to understand Paul. But with so many books on the apostle, where do you start?
Paul the Apostle is the ideal choice if you want a solid understanding of Paul's life, ministry, and writings without getting weighed down with minutia. Author Robert E. Picirilli, who taught college courses on Paul for over twenty-five years, found that most books on the apostle were either too technical or too basic, so he wrote a book that strikes a happy medium. It offers:
- A profile of Paul in his historical and cultural context
- Outlines and explanations of his missionary journeys
- Introductions and brief analyses of each of his epistles
Useful for individual study or as a textbook (as it is in many universities today), Paul the Apostle is a great one-stop study of the man who wrote half the New Testament, spread the gospel to the heart of the known world, and gave his life for the Kingdom.
