Fifty shortish chapters about the life and ministry of the Apostle Paul. The author is knowledgeable not just about the Bible passages that feature him, but about the typical life of a Jewish family in the first century. So the earliest chapters set the scene for his life, based on historical evidence.
The book then moves into what we know about the apostle from the Bible, particularly the book of Acts, but also some of his letters. It’s essentially a biographical account fleshed out with Beth Moore’s knowledge and research, and with plenty of application to modern believers.
The writing is good, there are some interesting personal touches here and there, giving insights into the author’s life, and on the whole I thought it excellent. There were a few minor things that grated, some because of our different cultures and backgrounds, some because the author takes a traditional view of some authorship rather than a more scholarly and open one. But they were minor blips in what was otherwise a well-written and sometimes thought-provoking book.
A definite MUST read for anyone needing more of Christ in their lives. A book that needs to be read several times and studying it too. Highly recommend it! I like very much Beth Moore's teaching and her books!
