    "The Story of Paul the Apostle"

    This Audiobook brought the story of Paul and the Apostles to life for me. Although I have heard and read the scripture all my life, Kirby Heyborne read the story with such feeling that the words of John Pollock and the Bible gave me the feeling that I was an eye witness to our Christian heritage.

    Story
    "Excellent Account of Paul's journeys"

    I've spent nearly 40 years reading and studying the Bible. I have a ThM - Master of Theology, MDiv - Master of Divinity, and a BA in Christian Thought. I am currently teaching high school Bible at a Christian school. I found myself enthralled with the author's retelling Paul's story from Damascus to Rome in a way I've longed to hear it. I found myself making time to listen to this audiobook and finished it in just a few days. The reader did an excellent job telling it.

    I really enjoyed the strength and tenacity of Paul. The clear vision as well as the energy, clarity, and courage of Paul are very encouraging to us as Christians today

    The many historical aspects of the story

    I have actually read the book and the book I feel is better than the audio book

    Helps you know Paul more than any other book.

    Makes Paul a real person that you could know.

    "Outstanding look into Paul's life"

    This was a very good look into the life of Paul the Apostle. It was accurate and most detail and easier to understand then just reading Scripture. Job well done.

    Story
    "magnificent."

    a story for the ages. no doubt a cornerstone of Christian literature. I found myself feeling like one of Paul's companions. Most importantly, my reading of the new testament epistles can never be the same. Finally, thank you all who made this experience possible.

    Story
    "Brought close to tears regularly!"

    As someone who has had a fascination with Paul for a while but simply not intelligent enough to grasp his philosophical writings and teachings I was thrilled to find this book/audiobook where I could listen to a thoroughly researched and understood journey of one of the most important figures of Christian and indeed world history.

    I got to go on Pauls journey, understand him as a person, understand the cultural context of his teaching and letters understand where and why there are controversies in his teaching, potentially what he was really talking about especially around the role of women in the church and the context around his statements on homosexuality. I feel very much I now understand the person of Paul and the pain and suffering he endured in pursuit of redemption for himself before his Lord Jesus and relentless fervour and zeal to bring the Gospel to all people.

    I would recommend this book to anyone within or outside the Christian faith who is looking for insight to the apostle to the Gentiles (non-Jews) a Pharisee who had Christians killed and sought to destroy the fledgling church turn pioneer apostle, who considered himself the least of the apostles but the hardest working.
