The apostle Paul was, by his own description, "the chief of all sinners." Yet, this colossal figure left an indelible signature of greatness never to be forgotten. Some would argue, no other person in the Bible, aside from Christ Himself, had a more profound influence on his world and ours today than Paul. In this book, Charles Swindoll paints a vivid picture of this remarkable man and his story. He shows how God reached down to Paul in all his self-righteous zeal and
crushed his pride,softened his heart, andtransformed this once-violent aggressor into a powerful spokesman for Christ.
Paul pursued his divine mission with unflinching resolve, and God used him mightily to turn the world upside down for Christ in his generation. Perhaps that's why Paul's life is such a source of hope for us. If the chief of sinners can be forgiven and become God's chosen vessel, can He not forgive and use us as well?
Paul is the sixth of a multi-volume series exploring Great Lives from God's Word and searching them to find the qualities that made them great. Join us for an exciting, in-depth look at this amazing life, as only Chuck Swindoll can describe it.

This is the first book I read by Charles. I became his fan. This is a great read. I definitely encourage everyone to read.
I had to give 4* because I felt that there were places where places where focus on Paul as the hero, while we can see it was HolySpirit or other people who played key roles in Paul’s ministry.
Indeed Paul was a man of Grace and Grit. A must read I will read this book again . Thanks for this book. Pray that we all have a life as Paul so one with God.
True grit, is putting it mildly this man’s dedication and love for our Lord Jesus Christ and the gospel is the most inspiring book I have ever read !
