About the Book

Paul tells those at Corinth, he "speaks the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the world unto our glory. Which none of the princes knew; for had they know it, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory." To those at Rome he says, it is "the mystery which was kept secret since the world began; but is now, made manifest by the scriptures of the prophets."
Struct blind on the road to Damascus, Saul returns from the desert, as the new man Paul. He tells the believers at Colossae: "Whereof, I am made a minister according to the dispensation of God, which is given to me for you, to fufil the word of God; even the mystery which has been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints." The mystery, which Paul reveals wihin his letters, is the key to understanding every story, every parable, and the intent of God's every intervention into the lives of men. Those letters entice believers to search for the "mystery of his will;" no longer hidden, they now reveal the "mystery of godliness." I`Corinthians 2:7-8; Romans 16:25-26: Colossians 1:25-26; Ephesians 1:9; I Timothy 3:16

About the Author

Stan Carter, as a seminary graduate, discovered that he had somehow lost his passion for reading his Bible and ministering to church members, who seemed frozen in the pew. He didn't blame them for his lack of faith, because he realized that the real problem stemed from his own unwillingness to set aside a special time each day, to listen for the voice of his Lord.
Then, when he could go no further, he made a decision to stand on the words of John: "But the anointing which you have received of him, abideth in you, and you need not that any man teach you. But the same anointing teaches you all things; and is Truth, and is no lie! And even as it has taught you, you shall abide in Him."
Those words of promise made all the difference; when each morning, the scriptures filled with a new breath of life. Chasing after Paul, the mystery of the gospel seemed to beat within his heart, as he read each of his letters. For the first time, the simplicity which is Christ, brought the rest, and the wisdom, he so desperately needed.
Now, with "eyes that see and ears that hear," he seeks to open that same window of understanding for all those of whom Christ said: "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me!"
