An exceedingly compact life of the Apostle to the Gentiles. It is bristling with information, and is brief, yet clear. As an outline of Paul's life it cannot be surpassed.
An ideal work for laymen.
St. Paul is next to Jesus as the greatest figure in the gospel history. The author has done his work well. The book is worthy of all praise. Thoughtful Bible students will obtain help here for the understanding of the character of this great man.
