The Apostle … A Life of Paul by John Pollock
Perhaps one of the most influential people in church history, Paul was instrumental in spreading the gospel throughout the Roman Empire. Pollock combines a storyteller’s gift with a scholar’s insight to create a fast-paced narrative of the apostle’s life, from his stoning of Stephen and conversion to his missionary journeys and execution. Although only one section in the book is devoted to Paul’s shipwreck on Malta, it is well worth the read. This book is truly exceptional. My husband and I have both read it! We read it right before we went to Malta in June 2014. God’s perfect timing!
