Paul the Apostle
The acts of Paul take up most of the book of Acts, and his letters make up about a third of the New Testament. Paul was an amazing man. Like his personality (into which his letters give us much insight) his doctrine is at once deep yet direct. He speaks as a man inspired by the Holy Spirit, a highly qualified scholar in his own right; a man worried about false teachers and their heresies; a man of rough journeys and almost unendurable hardships; a man passionate to make up for his past mistakes; a man driven by gratitude for God’s grace; a man totally under the spell of Christ who called him and chose him for a most special apostleship.
