As I study the Bible, the characters seem larger than life. It's easy to forget they were ordinary people who did extraordinary things in the power of God. The apostle Paul was an educated man who made tents – a trade that allowed him to earn money as he traveled to preach the gospel.
In his book, In the Footsteps of Paul, Ken Duncan leads us along Paul's path starting from his birth in Tarsus to his conversion on the road to Damascus, as he continued his ministry, and all the way to his death.
Crisp vivid pictures take us on a photographic tour. Harbors from which Paul would have sailed, roads he trekked, and arches he traveled through are brought to life in the photos and breathe new life into the Biblical passages that relate the details of Paul's journey through the Mediterranean on his way to Rome. Quotes by C.S. Lewis, Rev. Billy Graham, and many more along with passages by the apostle himself guide us along the way.
For anyone who loves God's Word, In the Footsteps of Paul brings new dimension to Apostle Paul's writings and his extraordinary life.
