In the Footsteps of Paul

Author and Photographer: Ken Duncan

Genre: Inspirational/general

Take a Walk with the Apostle Paul…(from the back cover)

The Apostle Paul left behind all he knew. He risked his life and livelihood, to advance the cause of Christ—a man convicted to die by the Jewish people.

When the Apostle Paul encountered Christ, his entire life was transformed. No longer was he the persecutor, but he was the preacher. And his transformation turned the world upside down.

Ken Duncan, internationally acclaimed photographer, has documented the transformation as well as Paul’s missionary journeys through his vivid photography.

This gift book is divided up into three sections:

Part 1, The Making of a Man – this section portrays Paul’s years in Tarsus and Caesarea and highlights his life-changing Damascus road experience.

Part 2, The Mission of a Man – this section depicts Paul’s tenacity in traveling and preaching throughout the Mediterranean.

Part 3, The Destiny of a Man – this section reflects on Paul’s final, fateful trip to Rome.

IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF PAUL will help the reader to view Paul’s life in a brand new way—through his/her own eyes. I was impressed by the beauty of the scenes that Paul must have seen, and it thoroughly brought to life the views that Paul must have enjoyed on his missionary journeys. The journeys became much more than just lines drawn on a map in the back of a Bible, but instead you will see the actual places where Paul worked, preached, and endured opposition.

I love this book, and feel that it would be an excellent addition to the library of any serious Bible scholar, as well as your minister. It is a unique book; I’ve never seen anything like it before, and I am really impressed by Mr. Duncan’s photography skills, and the whole book itself. Hardcover, it would make a wonderful gift for someone. $24.99 Hardback. 175 pages.
