The God-Life

Letters of the apostle Paul as personalised by Jim Graham

In his preface, Jim Graham shares how the Lord led him to start ‘translating’ the New Testament while on holiday, and how, as he started, “incredibly, my writing began to flow easily” and “the reflections of the years came clearly into my mind”.

The resulting book covers Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 & 2 Thessalonians and 1 Timothy. It is a powerfully inspired paraphrase and reveals the heart of God for His people in the most extraordinary of ways. Jim gets right to the core of the Apostle Paul’s writings, opens our eyes to see afresh God’s intentions for Christian living and challenges us to live our lives accordingly.

In his foreword the Rev Malcolm Duncan, Pastor, Gold Hill Baptist Church, says that “Jim Graham’s work in these interpretations of Paul offers us the chance to re-discover some of the implications of the Apostle’s words. Jim captures not only the meaning, but the sentiment, heart, passion and character of Paul. It is no wonder that he does so – Jim has been studying, reading and preaching from Paul’s letters for almost seventy years. Jim’s work in The God-Life has a powerful resonance with those of us who long to see the Bible come alive in the hearts of believers and in the Church.”

Peter Horrobin, Chairman of Sovereign World Ltd writes: “Prior to the establishment of Ellel Ministries in 1986, I was a professional publisher with a series of companies. Three times in those fifteen exciting years in the trade, I was fortunate enough to discover and publish significant books and have the privilege of bringing them to the market as best-sellers. Moments like those are never forgotten.

But when I started to read The God-Life, I realized I was holding in my hand something far more precious and valuable than anything I had ever discovered in the secular world. This was a ‘publishing moment’ to exceed all others. For when I read the text of The God-Life, I realized I was not only reading a manuscript of outstanding significance and quality, but it was as if I was standing on holy ground!”

This book exudes a profound passion for Christ it will make a wonderful complement to personal time with the Lord, opening up these scriptures in fresh and contemporary ways.
