How To Like Paul Again
The Apostle You Never Knew
by Conrad Gempt
As I picked up this book and began to read, I had no idea of the treat that was in store for me. I have never 'disliked' Paul, so on the face of it this book is not for me.
But it turns out to be a fascinating insight into Paul's relationship with two churches—in Galatia and Corinth—and one individual—Philemon.
In his summing up at the end, Conrad Gempf writes "The Bible may not be what you used to think it was. Stop thinking it's about you. God didn't write it about you." You need to read all that precedes that to appreciate what he is saying there.
I can thoroughly recommend this book—not only to help you like Paul better but to better understand God's blueprint for living the Christian life.
