Baptist preacher and close friend of D.L. Moody, Frederick Brotherton Meyer chronicled the lives of many biblical figures, but calls his biography of Paul “by far the most interesting” to write. “For days and weeks together,” he notes, “I have lived in the company of this glorious man; but only to feel that he transcended all one’s loftiest conceptions. Like some great mountain range, the more his character is traversed, the more it grows on the imagination.” Looking mainly to the Epistles, Meyer describes Paul’s life from his own writings—his life as it appeared to him. Gain insight into the prolific apostle as Meyer shares fruit of many years of reflection and study. In this engaging biography, you’ll journey through the twists and turns of Paul’s life while Meyer reveals the colorful story of a man fully yielded to God.
