Rowan Williams explores the essential meaning and purpose of Paul's letters in this beautifully written resource for the Lenten season.

Easy-to-read and packed with illuminating spiritual insights, Meeting God in Paul is perfect for beginners as well as those who've read the letters many times before and want to see them in a fresh light. Questions for reflection or group discussion are provided for each chapter. The book also features a reading guide that includes a reflection and prayer for each of the seven weeks of Lent.
