Saint Paul, the Right Man at the Right Time was written to get a comprehensive biographical sketch of Saint Paul including his early life, his life as a Pharisee, his direct contact with Jesus Christ on the Damascus road, his conversion from the many teachings of the Torah, and his God-given mission as the Apostle to the Gentiles.
The times in which he lived proved that God chose him as his apostle due to his brilliance and his ability to communicate in both written and verbal forms, not only in Hebrew, but in the Greek language, which was important in that historical time. His words and letters are as relevant today as they were in the first century of Christianity, and his teachings are still presented in Protestant churches and sermons today. My hope is one may read Saint Paul, the Right Man at the Right Time and have the ability to teach a basic class on the life of Saint Paul and encourage students to further their understanding of the importance of this biblical figure. The work touches on his theology, but I was more intent on giving the reader a personal overview of the man we know as Saint Paul. He very much lived in a time trying to spread a new religion in Christ that was very different from the belief systems of the Jews and Gentiles in the first century.

There was a lot of information in this book, and as I read it, I couldnt imagine that it was only 190 pages long. It seemed at least twice that long, and it took forever for me to get through it. The author took a man who existed almost 2000 years ago and made him as dry as his bones must be now. When I signed up for this book, I truly hoped for some personality for Paul, and I read nothing of his personality.
There were plenty of references to Acts and his epistles to diagram out Pauls travels and when they occurred, but I truly was hoping for something to help me like the guy, besides that he was a fantastic evangelizer. This book was great in allowing me to figure out why it was so easy for Paul to get his message out relatively easily, as well as understanding the Roman concept of a prisoner (not exactly the picture I had in my mind).
