Overview

"Multitudes of people start well, but only a third of a hundred or so Biblical characters finished well. Neil Cole gives us encouragement and much-needed advice for a life of greater significance and satisfaction as we increase in maturity."
Bob Buford, author, Halftime and Finishing Well; founder, Leadership Network

"Neil Cole, using the metaphor of journeys, focuses on five important development phases of the apostle Paul's timeline. The strengths of this work, apart from the good overview of Paul's life and ministry, are the post-chapter sections dealing with lessons—first observations from Paul's life and then often valuable personal lessons from the author's life. Neil gives the best interpretation of Paul's progress of ministry breakthrough insights that I have seen. This interpretive biography of Paul is a valuable resource for a leader who wants to pursue the Leadership Mandate (Hebrews 13:7,8) and learn from Paul's examples."
Dr. J. Robert Clinton, professor of leadership, School of Intercultural Studies, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Neil's coaching of thousands of leaders through the years helps him know exactly what to look for and how to apply it in the lives of leaders. No matter what life/ministry phase you are in, you will find insights here that help you better understand how you are being shaped for your leadership assignment."
Reggie McNeal, author, Missional Renaissance, The Present Future, A Work of Heart, and Practicing Greatness

"To all the wanna-be revolutionaries still cocooned in fear, past failures, and forgotten dreams, this book is for you! As an expert in leadership both prophetically and practically, Neil will take you somewhere you really want to go... into a life of street-level influence ... the place God really needs leaders."
Hugh Halter, author, The Tangible Kingdom, AND: The Gathered and Scattered Church, and Sacrilegious Disciple
