A very good study in Paul and his life, focusing on the historical aspects of Paul and especially his missionary journeys. It does include some reflection as well on theological issues around Paul's writing. Hamilton has done a good job researching, as well as writing, this study. This is a great study for small groups, but be sure everyone has a Bible to follow along between the historical information in Acts and the information in Paul's letters, especially Galatians and Romans. I recommend, if facilitating this study, using the accompanying DVD (which seems to be only available as a separate purchase). It is good and gives good visual support, especially for folks who have never been to that part of the world. The only issues that I found with this: it seems to take about 2 hours for each lesson and I am using in a format for one hour, so each lesson takes two sessions. Also, his dates tend to be a little off from what many scholars indicate - of course, no one has definitive dates for these anyway. A really good study on Paul

"Adam Hamilton has proven to be a faithful guide to applying the Bible to modern life in a sane and balanced way, and I trust him as an interpreter of the Apostle Paul for today." -Philip Yancey, author of Vanishing Grace and The Jesus I Never Knew
"Pastor and teacher Adam Hamilton succeeds brilliantly in introducing the life and ministry of Paul. Adam's interweaving of personal testimony and ministry insights provide important lessons for Christian disciples today--something Paul himself would have readily welcomed." - Dr. Mark Wilson, Asia Minor Research Center, Antalya, Turkey

This book is a wonderful gift for the church, and I recommend it with utmost Christian enthusiasm." - Dr. Israel Kamudzandu, Associate Professor of New Testament and Biblical Interpretation, Saint Paul School of Theology
