Author(s): Reg Piper
Paul, writer of 13 of the 27 books of the New Testament, described himself as the chief of sinners and the least of the apostles. In The Life and Labours of Paul, Reg Piper enables readers to ‘accompany’ Paul on a chronological guided tour of his life and ministry, with the aim of increasing our understanding and ability to do the will of God to Jesus’ glory as Paul did, in every circumstance, despite our failings.
These daily reflections cover 40 days—helpful in the Lent period leading up to Easter, but effective any time throughout the year. Questions for group discussion or personal reflection, as well as sermon outlines, are also included.
Reg Piper is on staff at St Michael’s Anglican Cathedral, Wollongong. He was Bishop of Wollongong from 1993 to 2007 and has served as rector of several Anglican parishes, including Holy Trinity Adelaide, Kiama and Gymea. Bishop Piper has a Doctorate of Ministry through the Los Angeles Fuller Theological Seminary and counts the evangelistic and pastoral ministry of the Apostle Paul as one of his special interests. He and his wife Dorothy have three children and seven grandchildren.
