PAUL
A Critical Life
Jerome Murphy-O’Connor
Here Jerome Murphy-O'Connor presents a completely new, and much more vivid and dramatic account of the
life of Paul than has ever previously been attempted. From his childhood in Tarsus and his years as a student
in Jerusalem to the successes and failures of his ministry, this biography has no peer in terms of its detailed
reconstructions of Paul's movements and motives.

SAINT PAUL
Called to Conversion: A Seven-day Retreat
Ronald D. Witherup
Paul's conversion is as dramatic a turning point as any in history. Paul's considerable knowledge of Jewish
Law helped to explain how Jesus could be the Christ, and his familiarity with gentile culture made countless
converts throughout the Roman Empire. His tireless preaching and writing, extensive travels and personal
sacrifice offer a lasting testament and guide to the church. His life is a witness that conversion is not a one-
time event, but a lifetime of commitment.

PAUL AND JESUS
The True Story
Rooted in a thorough knowledge of the New Testament, this book fulfills two important purposes. First, it
provides a superb introduction to Paul himself. Wenham describes Paul's early life, shows the importance of
his conversion, and follows him on his missionary journeys. Second, the book explores Paul's relation to Jesus.
Writing in dialogue with those who wish to distance Paul from Jesus, Wenham shows just how important the
ministry and teaching of Jesus were to Paul's own thought and evangelism. What emerges from a study of
Paul's epistles is a man who drew extensively on the traditions of Jesus and faithfully worked to spread his
message to the rest of the world.
