CHARACTERS Paul The Apostle

Try 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 offersA profile of Paul in his historical and cultural contextOutlines and Interesting book that summarizes what we know about Paul from Acts and his writings I had hoped the book would discuss how Paul extended articulated the teachings of Christ as an active life to live I appreciated that the author presented some arguments that textual critics have in summary referred the reader to other lengthy works and then described his own belief many times granting that differing opinions on most of these issues isn t a cross to die on if you ll forgive the reference they aren t doctrinal issues
