Feel, live, and breathe Paul's letters when you study them in the context of his life and work. These studies will guide you through Paul's first six letters, leading you through the where, when, and why they were written, leaving you a much deeper and personal understanding of what God was doing on his eventual journey to Rome. Follow the dramatic unfolding story of Paul's life through 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, and Romans. He spread the gospel, guided and directed the work of local churches, and explained to the wider world who knew nothing of Jesus just who Jesus is and what he has done.

The Understanding the Books of the Bible series enables groups to take a new approach to studying the Bible together. Instead of following artificial chapter and verse divisions, these study guides lead groups through whole books following their natural outlines, and pose engaging questions for discussion and personal application all along the way.
