Pure Gold Dec 23, 2008
This work is a classic and one of the best I've read on the subject matter, Pauline Christianity. Stewart expresses the heart of Paul in his own unique way and it has created a bond between him and me. It will always be in my library and I will do my best to re-read this work every year.
Superb Aug 12, 2008
This is an absolutely superb look at Paul's theology and thinking. It is firmly grounded in the fact of Paul's conversion and how everything that he did and wrote stemmed from his connection to Christ. There are just a ton of quotes in here that are priceless gems. I underline new ones every time I read the book. I don't know why I had never heard of this book prior to reading Major Ian Thomas' book "The Saving Life Of Christ". He mentions it and I have found it to be one of my favorites ever. If you have any interest in basic, living Christianity, this book is an abolute MUST!
A true blessing May 27, 2008
I cannot belive no one has critiqued this book yet. I bought this book over a year ago and since then I have read it multiple times. This is the scoop--there are multiples books on St. Paul out there. If you are an intellectual or a scholar interested only in the latest research about Paul and his letters this book is not for you. Obviously (based on date of publication) it is dated in terms of authorship of some of the letters and the use of the book of Acts as a reference on Paul. Now, if you are thirsting for the kind of information or knowledge that will transform your thinking about Paul and Christ and yourself this is definetively the book to read. My recommendation is read a few of the new scholarship books, saturate yourself with information regarding St. Paul life and what was happening during the first century; memorize his letters--especially Galatians, Corinthians and Romans and the come HOME to this book. Mr Stewart will help you share in the experience of being "in Christ". This book is to be chewed on and savor, meditate on his words and finally experience it and you will be sharing in St. Paul's transformative experience of being "in Christ". The taste is truly in the pudding.
