Paul lived a difficult life in a difficult world. Those first-century circumstances could easily have weakened his ministry. What kept his faith fresh and vital? His focus on Christ and his confidence that Jesus, in his full deity, gives us 'fullness of life'.

Paul provides a defense--warning, teaching, and encouraging us to focus on Christ. 8 studies for individuals or groups. Includes Leader's Notes.
