In To Live Is Christ, best-selling author Beth Moore travels on a spiritual odyssey through the life of one of Christianity’s most fervent journeymen, the apostle Paul, tracing his story from childhood to martyrdom.
Proclaiming his faith as a benchmark in New Testament Scripture, Beth writes, "I have accepted many of Paul’s words as a personal challenge. ‘I want to know Christ’ has become my plea. ‘To live is Christ and to die is gain’ has become my hope. And to borrow his words once more, ‘Not that I have already obtained all this . . . but I press on.’"
Paul’s undying passion for Christ continues to inspire and challenge those with a deep spiritual hunger for the things of God. Readers will be greatly refreshed by the obvious mercy of God that causes those who have failed him to repent and serve him wholeheartedly and effectively.

It should be called "To Live Is Paul", not "To Live is Christ". While the book is devotional in character and content (a perfectly acceptable format), rather than scholarly, what I find most disconcerting about it is the uncritical, if unspoken, assumption that Paul is the quintessential Christian. There is overwhelming textual and historical evidence for the proposition that his influence on the development (some would say his distortion) of the Christian faith is, in large measure, pernicious. Not everyone, including myself, would be willing to excuse this result as altogether due to the haste with which he composed his letters to the various gentile churches of his day. Ms. Moore is, of course, entitled to her view. It is, no doubt, shared by many who are committed to Jesus as their personal Lord and Saviour. I share the commitment. But I am not among those who look to Paul as an example of Christian practice.
