Book Review: In the Footsteps of Paul by Ken Duncan

Footsteps of Paul Book Cover This is an incredible book from Thomas Nelson. Ken Duncan is a photographer who traveled to the places that Paul visited on his three missionary journeys and final journey to Rome.

The pictures make this book what it is. Words cannot begin to describe it, you truly have to see these stunning pictures to believe it.

Reading about St. Paul in the Book of Acts and in his Epistles is one thing. And don’t get me wrong, it is an amazing thing. But it is quite another to see pictures of the places that Paul visited on his travels.

St. Paul traveled throughout the Eastern and Northern Mediterranean world for one purpose only – the share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with people.

And this he did. And in so doing, was God’s instrument in bringing the Gospel out of Israel to Turkey, Greece, and Italy – and thus, to the whole world.

In the Footsteps of Paul chronicles the conversion of Saul/Paul, his three missionary journeys, and his final trip to Rome with readings from Acts and his Epistles, as well as quotes from Christian authors like C. S. Lewis, Billy Graham, Max Lucado, and others.

Short of actually walking in Paul’s footsteps yourself, no study of St. Paul would be complete without these amazing photographs by Ken Duncan.

Highly recommended. To purchase a copy of In the Footsteps of Paul, click here.
