The Imitation of Saint Paul takes us behind the headlines of his career and offers a fresh, compelling, contemporary look at the man who changed the world. When the exemplary apostle got into the face of his converts, he bluntly held up his own life as the pattern for theirs. How risky is that? The purpose of this readable work with a modern twist is to discover how Paul viewed his divine commission and how he managed to survive incredible obstacles and hardships that threatened to undo him. What elements in the apostle's life made him the man he was? How does his life become the format of ours? What changes can we make to follow in his footsteps? This work serves as both an introduction to the apostle for those new to the Christian faith and as a healthy reminder for those who want to go deeper in their obedience to and service for Christ. ""This is one of the most engaging books I have read on St. Paul. Jim Reapsome has given us an engagingly fresh portrait of the apostle, as well as a challenge to walk as this faithful apostle walked. This is a small masterpiece. I want to spread the word about this informative and inspirational book."" --Lyle W.
