The apostle Paul had a greater impact on the formation of the Christian church than any other apostle. Nearly half of the New Testament bears his name as author, and sixteen chapters in Acts focus on Paul's' persecution of the church, conversion, missionary labors, arrest, and imprisonment. He was the most effective Christian missionary and church planter in history and the most significant interpreter of Jesus' life and teachings.
Illustrated Life of Paul introduces readers to this amazing man's incredible story, explaining the background of each of Paul's letters and summarizing the beliefs of one of the keenest theological minds in church history. All along, it provides an opportunity to step into Paul's world with more than 150 full-color photographs, maps, and illustrations.
