a good read with an open heartUser Review - Christianbook.com
IF you're thinking to read this as you would the Scriptures, don't bother - that isn't its purpose. This story, I believe, is meant to move us in heart to seek the Lord Jesus & serve Him in love all the more. We get an idea of what it was like in the days of Paul so that we will make that same devotion & strength our own. In reading this story I was motivated to read the book of Acts - it too came alive like never before. Don't get hung up on the accuracy of how the story is brought together, but do enjoy where it takes you.
Review: Paul, A NovelUser Review - Christianbook.com
As the chronological development of the story of Paul is Biblically based and the quotes are accurate, the characters are as falsely portrayed as any unfocused writing I have read.Great liberty is taken to portray pillars of the church as two-minded men who doubt their calling and make them out to be exceptionally weak individuals. Prisca is given far too much insight and given the rank of a prophetess in a church, besides "saving" Paul from a prison by donning men's clothing?! Paul's personality waffed between "tee-hee"ing to deep depression and antagonism. There is no where in the copy of the book I read that gave credit to any other source for information supplied for background of "as seen through the eyes of" characters who related the story. I was disappointed in this depiction of one of the greatest servants of Christ!
Great bookUser Review - Christianbook.com
I bought this book for my son, a new believer. I read this book a few years back and was telling him about it. He seemed intrigued, so I bought this copy for him. It is a great book and puts the reader "back in the day" so that you feel like you are right there, experiencing life in the book of Acts! Great book, fun to read. Makes you feel like you actually KNOW Paul!!!! Happy reading!
