Gorgeous Images Mar 18, 2010
With fantastically clear photographs, and just enough narrative to make it both accessible and a worthwhile educational pursuit (though the prose is clearly not for the seasoned scholar), this work belongs on the coffee table of the amateur biblical student. In this case, however, the book lives by the adage that a picture is worth a thousand words, and so is sparing with its prose. The purpose of the book is to show people the things they read about, whether in the Bible or in a textbook, rather than requiring them to lean solely on imagination. As it is, the book is worth the modest investment and is quite handsome a living room table.
Breathtaking Photography Feb 21, 2010
In the Footsteps of Paul is one of the most breathtaking books I have ever seen. It is a photographic journey following the Biblical accounts of Paul. Each photograph includes a summary of the historical event and scripture. However, the story is really told through the beautiful photography. There are 175 pages full of majestic views and architectual wonders. This hardcover is the pefect coffee table book and would make a beautiful gift.

In the Footsteps of Paul Feb 4, 2010
This is a terrific piece of photojournalism, weaving together first class photography of the places in Palestine, Turkey, and Greece where the Apostle Paul traveled 20 centuries ago. The effect is to create a deeper appreciation of New Testament scripture, and at the same time, to give the reader an up-close-and-personal mental picture of the places Paul walked, as they look today. If you don't have the spare cash to go there yourself, buying a copy of "In the Footsteps of Paul" is the investment you want to make.

Wonderful pictorial assistant to understanding the life of Paul Nov 25, 2009
As the title suggests, this book is a pictorial trip through all the major regions covered by the Apostle Paul's New Testament journeys. Photographed by Ken Duncan, author and photographer of Where Jesus Walked and The Passion, it boasts stunning photographs of absolutely breathtaking subject matter. Many of the pages have Scripture passages that refer to the specific area in which the picture was taken as well. The divisions of the book, appropriately entitled The Making of a Man, The Mission of a Man and The Destiny of a Man, clearly categories Paul's life and work during his journeys.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will most definitely keep it for future reference. Not only is it inspirational to be able to tie visual detail to many of the familiar stories surrounding Paul's life, but the quality of the photography is wonderful and serves as a different form of inspiration to someone, such as myself, who is pursuing that passion as well. It is not often that I take time to note the foreword of a book, but the one written here by John MacArthur is a beautiful introduction the treasury contained in this book. While a few of the pictures seemed a bit out of place, all in all the pictures - laced with appropriate Scripture passages - serve as a vivid medium to help understand and better visualize the very steps Paul may have taken during his journeys. I would definitely recommend this book highly to anyone.
Good, if not for the text, then for the photographs. Oct 15, 2009
The photographs in here are simply beautiful. Some of the best I've seen, and it makes me yearn for travel once more, especially to the Mediterranean coast. Nevertheless, and though I'm not completely distraught by the text of the book, I would have to admit that it's a bit broken at times and are sometimes disrupted by the photographs (though they are great in and of themselves).
But the quotations and passages don't entirely take away. If anything, read this as a "picture book," if you will, with the bonus of text as side-notes to the ambiance the photographs emit.
If you can get your hands on this book, even for display purpose, I'd say go for it (though see if you can look at a hard copy before buying it).
