about

Fresh insight into Christianitys earliest teachings can be a guide for your own spiritual journey.

The Apostle Paul, who wrote many of the books in the New Testament, was a fearless and revolutionary religious innovator. In a society where slaveholding was commonplace and women were little more than servants, he preached a groundbreaking equality founded on a new spiritual identity. In an imperial political system that demanded unquestioning allegiance, Paul told his readers they were citizens of heaven.Yet Paul diverged from many of Jesuss own teachings about the world and Gods kingdom, and his writings have been used to justify slavery, defend violence toward women, and vilify followers of other religious paths.

With fresh translations from the original Greek and insightful yet unobtrusive commentary, Ron Miller guides you through the complexities of Pauls writings. He explores Pauls limitations and sometimes harmful legacy, but also highlights Pauls deep connection with Gods Spirit. This connection led to Pauls penetrating insights on how to live a life filled with spiritual vigor, experience profound joy even in the face of trouble, and understand the fundamental power of love to overcome any obstacle.

Whether you are familiar with Pauls writings or have no previous knowledge of them, this SkyLight Illuminations volume will open a door to let you experience the power of Pauls words for yourself.
