The Invalid Warrior: Paul, an Apostle

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

The Invalid Warrior is another in a long line of books about the Apostle Paul: some good, some bad. Paul's life was so filled with adventure that a thousand books about his life would not be terribly repetitious. In thirty-four years of ministry Paul was beaten with rods or switches eight times. These beatings were so severe he surely needed at least six weeks to recover enough to walk. Dr. Luke's skill helped keep him alive. Luke would have likely done skin grafting to cover Paul's exposed ribs and spine. Paul would have needed massive doses of opium to make such surgery possible. What problems could large amounts of opium cause? This book begins with Paul as an eight-year-old racing with his companions through the streets of Jerusalem kicking an improvised ball. We learn of his birth and youth when he is delirious with pain in the Philippian jail, as he sees himself being born, thus covering the events of his entire life. Is Paul married? Did his Pharisee father disown him? We can only speculate, but the speculating makes good recreational reading. He spent a night and a day in the deep? Was he watched by voracious sharks? Where was he when he was robbed, and what was his state after his possessions wer taken? Did the robbers take his clothes? What were the miracles and signs he did? Were healings all that he did, or were there other miraculous works that would seem to us almost like science fiction, or magic? Meditate upon my Word, the Father commands. How interesting, even stimulating the meditations can be The author of The Invalid Warrior used all of the stuff he could get his hands on the learn about Paul, and to pass it on to you in his three books. You will not only learn the missionary journeys of Paul, but much about his life as it is revealed to us in the epistles and in the Acts. Reliable secular history if woven in to broaden our knowledge of him and his exploits. Even in these books are not well written, you will gain from reading them. If you don't like them, of course, my address is in them. Just tell me you don't like them, and why; and I will sadly, but suddenly, send your money back.
