Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Insight! Reading this book can give you an amazing insight into the ministry of Paul the apostle, and into the forces operating in and outside the early christian church. Gave me a new insight and appreciation of ministry and, I guess there isn't anything new under the sun. Easy Read, alot of depth, and thought provoking
