Every Christian is indebted to the Apostle Paul for his work, his writing and his clear presentation of the Gospel. From his birth in Tarsus to his beheading near Rome we will follow the footsteps of the Jew who started many churches among contemporary Gentiles in pagan cities across the Roman Empire. Our objective it to see more clearly how the Gospel triumphed over pagan thought and life, and how Paul used the Scripture to meet the challenges of ministry. This volume includes the background materials on the man, his mission and what his Master accomplished in and through his life. After introductory materials, the text leads us to eight formative lessons God taught Paul to prepare him to be the voice of the Good News. We will see Paul from his new birth until he completed the second mission journey - arguably the worst time in his life and ministry. These studies remind us that Paul was an excellent combination of a Roman structured mind, an accomplished Greek reader and speaker, and a throbbing Hebrew heart. God used this unique man to accomplish a mammoth task - explain the Gospel of grace when God replaced the former atonement system with a full justification by a completed work in Messiah.
