In the more intimate vein of personal Bible study and commentary pioneered by Beth Moore, lay aside the staid and sometimes boring vision of Paul as an early church patriarch and instead explore an in-depth study of the historical, political, and social traditions from which he wrote to understand the ways in which his own journey was being impacted, even as he traveled and ministered to others. Far from being tedious, as he so often seems, Paul was passionate, eloquent, politically discerning, and utterly human. Through extensive exegetical study and personal narrative, Paul's life becomes a compelling example by which to live, and his words to the Philippians become one of God's greatest love letters to His church.

It's 272 AD and the Roman Emperor Aurelian has defeated Queen Zenobia and crushed the Palmyran revolt, but now dark forces threaten a fragile peace. Faridun's Banner, hallowed battle standard of the Persian Empire, has fallen into Roman hands and is to be returned to the Persians as part of a historic peace treaty. But on the eve of the signing the banner goes missing. Recalled to Syria, imperial agent Cassius Corbulo is charged with recovering the flag. Accompanied by his faithful servant Simo and ex-gladiator bodyguard Indavara, Cassius must journey across the dangerous wastes of Syria to the equally perilous streets of Antioch. He and his companions face ruthless brigands, mysterious cults, merciless assassins, and intrigue at every turn.
