This book explores the life and spirituality of Saint Paul through his own writings and those of popes, saints, and great teachers of the Christian Church. Presented as 40 daily readings, the entries are organized by eight themes from Paul's life and teachings: a Converted Man; Witness to the Nations; Trials and Afflictions; the Revelation of Jesus Christ; Life is Christ, Death is Gain; the Greatest of These is Love; the Fruit of the Spirit; and Witnessing to Jesus Christ in Our Lives. The book includes an introduction discussing the major stages of Paul's life and ministry, and a collection of the prayers of Paul, designed for easy memorization and application in daily life.
"A matchless treasury of wisdom about and from St. Paul.... The well-crafted questions for reflection at the end of each of 40 devotions touch the heart with Paul's message and lead to life-changing decisions."óBert Ghezzi
