"Besides Jesus, no one has kept me from despair, or taken me deeper into the mysteries of the gospel, than the apostle Paul." (John Piper)
No one has had a greater impact on the world for eternal good than the apostle Paul - except Jesus himself. For John Piper, this impact is very personal. He does not just admire and trust Paul. He loves him. Piper gives us thirty glimpses into why his heart and mind respond this way.
Can a Christian-killer really endure 195 lashes from a heart of love? Can a mystic who thinks he was caught up into heaven be a model of lucid rationality? Can an ethnocentric Jew write the most beautiful call to reconciliation? Can a person who lives with the unceasing anguish of empathy be always rejoicing? Can a man's description of the horrors of human sin be exceeded by his delight in human splendor? Can a man with a backbone of steel be as tender as a nursing mother?
If we know this man - if we see what Piper sees - we, too, will love him. Paul's testimony is a matter of life and death. Piper invites you into his relationship with Paul in the hope that you will know life, forever.

I love the insight to Paul's heart and how he viewed everything else rubbish except for knowing God and sharing with God how his life meant nothing without God and how in the end that's all that matters is that you have God and know God and spread that message to others. to count losing your life here as a gain in Christ! I think I will have to go through the book again because there's always something new to learn.
