In this book, Richard Dormandy charts with compassion the journey of St Paul through the “madness” of fear and self-loathing to a profound dependence on God’s grace and love. This unusual and perceptive reading of St Paul will be of interest to all students of the New Testament. But it will also be profoundly liberating to all Christians who have faced challenge, criticism and burnout in their ministry. As St Paul rediscovers the love of God in Christ Jesus, he offers his own hard-won insights to all who struggle to trust in hard times.
