The apostle Paul was kind of a jerk.
He was arrogant and stubborn. He called his opponents derogatory, racist names. He legitimized slavery and silenced women. He was a moralistic, homophobic killjoy who imposed his narrow religious views on others.
Or was he?
Randolph Richards and Brandon O’Brien explore the complicated persona and teachings of the apostle Paul. Unpacking his personal history and cultural context, they show how Paul both offended Roman perspectives and scandalized Jewish sensibilities. His vision of Christian faith was deeply disturbing to those in his day and remains so in ours.
Paul behaved badly, but not just in the ways we might think. Take another look at Paul and see why this “worst of sinners” dares to say, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.”

Answers to the most important questions about Christian baptism
Baptism is a step of obedience for every believer, but behind this simple act lies a rich tapestry of Christian belief and teaching. In the second edition of this short volume, Larry Dyer responds to the most common questions Christians have about baptism in nontechnical language, making it ideal for personal or small-group study. He explains what baptism is, what it means, why it is necessary, and what the mode of baptism should be. He also addresses whether infant baptism should be practiced, and whether baptism contributes to a believer’s salvation. He ends the book with practical advice for how to prepare for and enjoy one’s experience of baptism.
If the Son has set us free, then why are so many Christians still struggling with toxic emotions keeping them in constant pain and suffering?
When best-selling and award-winning author, Terry Toler, discovered through Scripture that emotions were meant for present reality, he wrote a book that revealed a new approach to emotional freedom.
Feeling Free is unique with its entirely different biblical approach to mastering emotions based on current reality. The premise is that most people struggle with their emotions because they combine present troubles with past hurts and future worries. That creates an overload of emotional instability.
PRAISE FOR FEELING FREE
“This is more than a book. It’s going to change lives.”
“God is going to use this book to set people free. It’s so exciting!”
