Show synopsis Paul's passion for Christ continues to inspire and challenge those with a hunger for the things of God. In this carefully researched recreation of his life, Beth Moore goes from childhood through to martyrdom, vividly recreating his circumstances, character, and his devotion to his Master. Beth sees Paul's love for Christ as unparallelled in New Testament. She writes, "I have accepted many of his words as a personal challenge. 'I want to know Christ' has become my plea. 'To live is Christ and to die is gain' has become my hope." Her direct, personal style gives this book a powerful appeal. Far more than a simple biography, this is a journey into the heart of the great apostle, discovering the vision and purpose that drove him to set aside his previous convictions, earning the hatred of those who had once been his colleagues - but gaining a treasure beyond price.
