Getting to Know Paul

​When we read the New Testament, it's easy to conclude that our lives are puny compared to the apostle Paul. So how can we move away from the notion that "Paul was so far beyond us" to "Paul was a man just like me—and here's what I can learn from him." In other words, how can we move him off a pedestal and into the realm of practical and knowable? That’s our focus this week on The Land and the Book. Join us!

Plus, the hottest headlines out of the Middle East...and Charlie Dyer's insight into your questions about prophecy, Scripture, and politics in the Middle East. Don't miss The Land and the Book.
