The Kregel Pictorial Guide To The Apostle Paul, Book review

Book description:

Sound research and illuminating visuals make biblical and historical times and teachings come alive for today's middle-school and highschool students as well as Bible students, teachers, and pastors looking for a concise overview of familiar topics. This new volume continues the valuable tradition of the best-selling Kregel Pictorial Guide series, making history easy to understand and interesting to learn.
Paul is one of the most influential figures in history-and one of the most controversial. In this comprehensive outline of Paul's life, travels, writing, and theology, Dr. Todd Wilson sets out to clear away some of the misunderstanding and present the extraordinary achievements of the man from Tarsus.
Fully illustrated with maps, color photographs, and charts, this book offers an invaluable introduction to Paul, the voyager and church-builder, writer and theologian.

My review:

With a mere 32 pages this 'Kregel Pictorial Guide To The Apostle Paul' written by Todd Wilson, PhD. brings us an oustanding view of the life and letters of Paul through his travels and love of the Church!

Beginning with Paul's background we 'see' the amazing conversion of the Apostle and read a detailed account of his mission followed by his theology and ending with his legacy. Also included in this pictorial guide is the potential students introduction to Paul's letters to the Churches as well as his letters, these written whilst in prison, to Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Philemon.

With a careful selection of photographs, many detailed maps as well as charts of Paul's travels you will find this guide to be a must have for home schoolers, Sunday school teachers and church libraries.

A great publication from Kregel, I can only describe this one as a perfect 5 stars rating!
