In Strategic Advance the spotlight moves from the general themes of Acts to the life and work of the church’s greatest missionary—Paul. His consistent desire from the moment the heavenly bolt flashed around him on the road to Damascus was to honor Christ. He took the change in his own life to the far reaches of the Empire, making him an inspiration and example for the church in our own time.
