There is an urgency

Paul was on fire with Christianity's truth, its transforming power. This truth had changed him, and must change the world.

Nearly single-handedly he began inspiring the formation of Christian churches and nurturing them to spread Christianity's message.

Paul's letters show that he was animated by much more than human enthusiasm. What he glimpsed of the one God—in whom "we live, and move, and have our being," as he put it—couldn't wait to be shared. So he shared it.
