5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent adventures, February 27, 2001
This review is from: Evidence and Paul's Journeys (Paperback)
I love history because I love stories, and the Acts of the Apostles is filled with wonderful stories. But Luke's narrative tone is a bit prosaic, and the familiarity wrought by frequent rereading can take the edge off the excitement of the events Luke describes.
"Evidence and Paul's Journeys" brings the excitement back. As he corroborates detail after detail of Paul's missionary journeys, Mr. White casts a raking light on the excitement and drama of Paul's travels and brings them into sharper relief.
All Christians recognize St. Paul's importance in shaping the early church and in spreading the Gospel well beyond its earliest boundaries. But I for one was only dimly aware of the sheer drama of his life. What adventures he had! Arrests and trials, torture, shipwrecks, preaching before cheering throngs and reviled by angry mobs, encounters with fascinating people from all walks of life and of countless ethnic backgrounds (was Paul the first multiculturalist?). All Paul's adventures and encounters are here, placed solidly within their social and historical context so that Paul's great courage and faith shine forth.
"Evidence and Paul's Journeys" will send you back to Acts with fresh eyes, able to appreciate once again the power of the wonderful stories Luke tells.
