Nearly half of the New Testament, 13 of 27 books, are written by the same person: the apostle Paul. Writing to both individuals and churches, Paul brought the gospel of Jesus Christ to the lives of many. His letters contain the heights of theology and the depths of everyday living. But they are just that, letters. While they hold timeless truths about God and life, the were penned to a particular group, for a particular reason, and at a specific time. Reading them can be confusing—even Peter admits that some of the things Paul writes are “hard to understand.” Hard, but not impossible. Turn these pages to be introduced to that man, his writings, and how they are for us today.
