LEAST of the APOSTLES By Dennis E. Ingolfsland

The book places a carefully condensed version of Paul's letters chronologically into the historical story of Paul's ministry as recorded in the Book of Acts. Brief introductions to each letter and footnotes on historical background help the reader better understand Paul's ministry in the broader context of Roman History.
The book also includes short appendices on Paul's letters and the New Testament canon, and on the relation of Paul's teaching to that of Jesus.

This book was not written for scholars. It was written for new believers, or for unbelievers who are "seeking" and who want a quick overview of what the gospel and Christianity is all about.
