November 12th – Reading Chapter 3 (vol 2) Paul:Encountering the Apostle and Missionary by Roger Ellsworth
“The story of the apostle Paul is one of the most fascinating in history. The bitter enemy of Christianity becomes its most powerful and
zealous advocate. He spreads the good news of the risen Christ far and wide, and leaves many churches in his wake. Yet this is not the
account of how much a great and gifted man can accomplish when he sets his mind to something, it is a story of the grace of God that l
aid hold of this man and transformed his life. It is a story that is still being told as that same grace continues to work in human lies today””.
