Biblical scholar Dr. Bill Creasy is truly at his best when telling the epic story of the apostle Paul, born Saul of Tarsus. These 24 fascinating lectures follow Paul's religious evolution from staunch persecutor of early Christians to one of Christianity's most crucial converts. Creasy goes beyond the literal verses of Acts and gives his listeners a historical context and a compelling interpretation of Paul's revolutionary life. The professor brings a doctorate in English literature as well as a deep love of the Word of God to this series of lectures. He is always lively, warm, and easy to understand - fitting characteristics for discussing a saint.
Saul of Tarsus was one of the most brilliant young men of his generation. Growing up in a wealthy family, receiving a world-class education, and being groomed for leadership at the highest level of Judaism, Saul became the great persecutor of the emerging Church shortly after Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection. On the road to Damascus to round up Christians and have them brought back to Jerusalem for punishment, Saul encounters the risen and glorified Christ - and his life turns upside down.
In the wake of his conversion, Saul of Tarsus becomes "The Apostle" Paul. Singlehandedly, Paul evangelizes all of Asia Minor and a big part of Europe, and he writes 13 of the 27 books of the New Testament. Paul's dramatic conversion and his evolution from sinner to Saint is one of the the Bible's greatest stories. And no one can tell it like Logos Bible Study's Dr. Bill Creasy. Join us as Dr. Creasy adds color, tone, and texture to Paul, one of the most complex - and often misunderstood - people in the Bible.

This is the second Logos Bible Study I have listened to by Dr. Creasy and I can't stop listening to it. He is very engaging and mixes the right amount of humor in his lessons to keep it interesting. I find myself sitting outside my office when I get to work wishing I had farther to drive as I don't want to stop listening. I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone.
This's an interesting study of Acts and the letters Paul wrote. It's in-depth and at times humorous. A must for anyone studying the New Testament.
I love listening to Dr. Bill Creasy tell the story of Paul. I have recommend it to all my friends and even my 17 year old Granddaughter. I have listened to it about 20 times
I love how Bill add a flavor to the life of Paul that allows the audience to see Paul as a person with challenges and a personality that was utilized by God. Bill adds personal stories to bring Paul's life to a common understanding for our culture.
You really wanna know Paul? Every other teaching tells of Paul's works and of course his road to Damascus but not much more beyond that. I will never stop listening to logos and hope I get to meet Dr. Creasy someday!
Since I have started listening to Audible I have had some very good looks. Maybe I have been lucky and just picked books that were very good. This one stands out because it is so well defined in all of the New Testament where Paul is involved. 26 hours and I never got bored
HI!!!!!! I love to read!!!
I don't even know how I found this....but it was wonderful!!! Bill is so knowledgeable and funny! His teachings are a mixture of history and personal stories. He has a great way of explaining by bringing the stories into the present. I feel a kinship to Saint Paul now that I would not have had if I didn't listen to this. Also, by going along with him with my bible gave me the most awesome feeling of fellowship with Jesus...Paul is amazing and Dr. Bill was born to spread the good news. I thank you Dr. Bill!!!!
"bringing the past to life"
Bill Creasey does a marvellous job of bringing a biblical character to life in this series. I don't consider myself religious....I simply wanted to know why so many people believe what the bible says. Reading about the Romans set me off on this particular journey which I have to admit has been a pleasure. Not only do I find myself interested in the story of Paul - Bill Creasy brings great humour and vitality to the history which has helped me understand what was only a legend as something real and perhaps more relevant than I realised. For a warm, knowledgeable narrative of a main character from the greatest book ever written I unreservedly recommend this audible title and especially Dr Bill Creasey
5 stars - great teaching, thank you so much. I always pick up so much every time I listen.
