The Apostle Paul: A 5-Day Devotional

This article is part of the Reading Plans series.

Bold Gospel Proclamation

Once known for his brutal persecution of Christians, the apostle Paul underwent a radical transformation—enduring trial and suffering, and becoming known for his bold proclamation of the saving grace of Jesus until his death.

In the introduction to Why I Love the Apostle Paul: 30 Reasons, John Piper says:

I deeply appreciate Paul’s life-giving teaching, and I have huge admiration for the extraordinary traits of excellence in his life. His words have been my salvation, and his life has more than warranted those words. I owe my life to the gospel of Jesus—and no one has taken me deeper into the mysteries of the gospel than Paul.
