This book presents the life and work of the New Testament's premier missionary, the apostle Paul. It surveys his "pre-Christian life," his conversion and call, and his missionary activities, noting the pivotal events that marked his relationship with the congregations he founded and with the Jerusalem church. Vander Broek focuses on Paul's life and labors but also provides important and relevant discussions of how the life of Paul speaks to Christian faith today. This book will be of much interest to contemporary church groups and individuals who are interested in how the church's most important early missionary continues to impact Christian lives. Questions for discussion are included.

Lyle D. Vander Broek

Lyle D. Vander Broek is Professor of New Testament at the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa.

"It's difficult to find an introduction to the life and ministry of Paul that isn't either a summary of dry academic material or shallow sentimentalism. Lyle Vander Broek has given us a book on Paul--introducing readers to both the book of Acts and Paul's own letters--that is truly accessible and thoughtful. Even better, it nourishes Christian faith by explaining how Paul's life remains instructive today." Matthew L. Skinner, Associate Professor of New Testament, Luther Seminary and author of The Trial Narratives: Conflict, Power, and Identity in the New Testament "The Life of Paul for Today helped our Adult Bible Study group understand the pastoral and personal side of Paul and increased their appreciation of how Paul's Letters speak to the contemporary church." Cindy Shepherd, Pastor Philo Presbyterian Church, Philo, Illinois
