Product Description

Epaphroditus would have preferred to walk from Philippi to Rome. This was the stormy season, the time when cold winds from the north mixed with warmer air over the Mediterranean, causing sudden and violent tempests. As the temperatures plummeted and the wind and rain engulfed him, the young potter silently rebuked himself: No one in his right mind travels at this time of year. Not by sea. What were you thinking? Unconsciously, he felt beneath his tunic foe the belt at his waist and was instantly reminded of why he was on the ship. The belt was thick with mail addressed "To Paul," notes containing warm words of encouragement and prayers for Paul's quick release from prison. A few of the letters were longer, adressing deeper concerns about the church in Phillippe, raising issues only an apostle could resolve.

Publisher's Description

The Christians at Philippi were hurting. A stranger had triggered pandemonium in the church, spinning a web of deception and division. Leader had turned against leader, friend against friend. The Apostle Paul was their only hope.

    i've read a lot of Biblical fiction, but I believe that this book is the finest I've ever read--both for its content and the excellent writing. I'll never think of the Apostle Paul in the way I envisioned him before because now I have a better feeling for his deep compassion for the churches he founded and for the individual believers he loved so much. Also, his physical sufferings for the cause of Christ have more meaning for me now. As for Epaphroditus, what a special believer and fellow worker with Paul! Nothing in this book violates the Scriptural account in Acts or Philippians to me. The book of Philippians has always been special to me, and now I have a better feeling of what may have been behind some of the things Paul wrote in it. And I appreciate Lydia and Clement even more! This is a book not to be read quickly--every page enriches the believer tremendously. I wish the author would write a book like this for other epistles of Paul. For now--don't miss this one!

    It is rare to pick up a book of such incredible magnitude! Tim makes you feel as though you are there seeing and feeling the passion and pain of the early church. This book fills in all the details within a factual framework of the letter Paul wrote to the Philippians. Impossible to put down. You have to pace yourself to enjoy every word. I pray he writes another!

    What a vivid, moving and accurate portrait of Paul Mr. Woodruff has made!I am a Bible teacher and have been teaching the last two years on Philippians and Romans. This book has brought the poetic and passionate writings of Paul to a vibrant life.I find that all that the author has written is faithful to the character and mission of Paul. But he's also put flesh and bones and a face on this extraordinary and yet very human person.I've already bought copies for my whole class and sent them to my own Bible teacher.I recommend this wholeheartedly to anyone who wants to understand Paul and have a heart like his.
