Title: Paul: A Man of Grace and Grit

The apostle Paul. The converted terrorist, inspired author, amazing teacher, and patient mentor.This colossal figure strode boldly onto the stage of the first-century world and left an indelible signature of greatness never to be forgotten. His life? Magnificent! And his ministry? Impressive. While assigned sainthood by some today, by his own description he was "the chief of all sinners." No other person in the Bible, aside from Christ Himself, had a more profound influence on his world and ours than Paul.

He was a man of real grit, with a firmness of mind and spirit and unyielding courage in the face of personal hardship and danger. Tough, tenacious, and fiercely relentless, Paul pursued his divine mission with unflinching resolve. And God used him mightily to turn the world upside down for Christ in his generation.

But Paul's message and his style were also marked by gentle grace. This man, who tormented and killed the saints of God, understood and explained grace better than any of his contemporaries. Why? Because he never got over his own gratitude as a recipient of it. God's super-abounding grace transformed this once-violent aggressor into a humble-but-powerful spokesman for Christ. A man with that much grit desperately needed that much grace.

Perhaps that's why Paul's life is such a source of hope for us. If the chief of sinners can be forgiven and become God's chosen vessel, can He not forgive and use us as well? He can, if we too become people of both grace and grit.

Paul is the sixth of a multi-volume series exploring Great Lives from God's Word and searching them to find the qualities that made them great. Join us for an exciting, in-depth look at this amazing life, as only Chuck Swindoll can describe it: Paul: A Man of Grace and Grit.

Title: Saint Paul the Apostle: The Story of the Apostle to the Gentiles

??"We just found out there's a plot to kill you!" blurted out one man among the little group of Christians as they stumbled into the house of Saul (who later would become known as Paul).
??"The murderers have been hired, and the Damascus authorities have agreed to look the other way," put in another breathlessly.
??For a moment there was silence from Saul.
??"Well, what are you going to do?" whispered the visitors fearfully.
??Saul thought joyfully of how St. Stephen had been martyred for Christ. But he knew that was not God's will for him just yet.
??"I'll leave Damascus and escape to Jerusalem," he answered. "I'll go after dark. Will you help me?"
??"But the watchmen will never let you pass the city gates. They've all been bribed by your enemies."
??"We'll bypass the city gates," answered Saul calmly. "Just let me explain. . . ."
??What did Saul have in mind? Would it be dangerous? And would it work?
??This book tells what happened. It also describes how Paul won victories over the devil, how he was mistaken for a god, and how he faced court trials, scourging, imprisonment, angry mobs and, finally, martyrdom for Christ. In short, this is the story of the many adventures in the life of the great Saint Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles.

Title: Apostle Paul: His Life and Theology

"Among recent studies of Paul's life and thought, Schnelle's deserves to be ranked not only as one of the most comprehensive but also as one of the most compelling. With methodological clarity and exegetical skill, he demonstrates that the apostle's theology has to be understood in relation to his ministry and that this requires an examination of his letters individually, in the light of their respective historical, situational, and cultural contexts. Schnelle's exposition of the basic structures and overarching themes of Paul's theology is the more credible for being so carefully grounded and is an outstanding contribution to the ongoing discussion of this critical topic."
--Victor Paul Furnish, Southern Methodist University

"An amazingly comprehensive book on the apostle. . . . I do not know when in recent years a scholar has grappled with the history behind Paul's life and produced as coherent a statement of Paul's thought as it arises out of the circumstances of his ministry. This massive book will no doubt be read primarily by scholars and graduate students and perhaps serve as a textbook or resource for others. Eugene Boring ably translates the book and adapts the bibliographical documentation for English-speaking readers. . . . Schnelle's work represents an important milestone in Pauline studies. It will be a major conversation-partner for scholars for a long time to come."
--Charles B. Cousar, Interpretation

"A magisterial work that will become an essential reference volume for students and scholars alike desiring a convenient book that examines all important primary texts and scholarly positions in Pauline research, particularly English and German. . . . The author and translator have worked well together to produce a work that surpasses the German original: it should be regarded as an entirely new study! Schnelle's book will undoubtedly become a classic in the field."
--Kenneth Atkinson, Review of Biblical Literature

"A significant contribution to the study of Paul's theology. . . . The writing and theological analysis is crisp, logical, and precise. . . . The work provides an interesting way to access much German Pauline scholarship. It is a pleasure to read and each page holds new insights even for the advanced scholar."

Title: Never Stop Holding Hands: And Other Marriage Survival Tips

The drama of a novel meets scholarship in leading Christian biographer John Pollock's classic work about one of the most transforming persons in history: the apostle Paul.

The Apostle masterfully combines careful adherence to biblical text, detailed research, and a storyteller's gift to create a book equally relevant for both casual readers fascinated by Paul's life and serious biblical scholars. Pollock begins his fast-movig narrative with Stephen's death and follows Paul through his conversion, missionary journeys, and eventual execution. Many will enjoy it simply as a satisfying and insightful true-life story, although maps and a study guide allow for deeper exploration. The Apostle was originally published in 1969, and this new edition marks the first significant revision in many years.

Title: Paul; A Critical Life

Traditionally the Acts of the Apostles has provided the framework for biographies of the Apostle Paul. In recent years, however, the historical value of the Acts has come into question. Many scholars argue that, despite the accuracy of many details, the text as a whole reflects the interests of Luke rather than objective reality.

This book presents a completely new, and much more vivid and dramatic, account of the life of Paul than any before. While continuing to give consideration to the Acts, Murphy-O'Connor reconstructs the apostle's life--from his childhood in Taursus and his years as a student in Jerusalem, to the successes and failures of his ministry--from his own writings. Reinforcing his critical analysis of Paul's letters with close attention to archaeology and contemporary texts, Murphy-O'Connor not only charts Paul's movements, but extracts a new understanding of his motives and the social and cultural aspects of his ministry. Most important of all, this biography transforms a fountain of theological ideas into a human being.
