By: F.F. Bruce
In this biography of the Apostle Paul, F. F. Bruce reflects upon Paul’s personality through the main themes of his letters. Among the subjects discussed are the Mosaic Law, the flesh and the spirit, baptism, the Lord's Supper, and the life to come.
F.F. Bruce wrote this biography of Paul to share the rewards that he experienced in his study – the rewards that came, he said, because of the warmth of Paul's personality, his intellectual stature, his message of redeeming grace, and his single-minded devotion to preaching the gospel. "Paul's pre-eminent contribution," says Bruce, "has been his presentation of the good news of free grace, . . . manifested not only in God's acceptance of sinners but in the transformation of those thus accepted into the likeness of Christ."
