In Paul Writes a Letter, Raschka gives us a lovely introduction to St. Paul and his epistles. Paul was a faithful and educated man who in the middle of his life began to believe in the story and teaching of Jesus. He traveled all throughout the Roman Empire to speak of his new way of thinking. While he traveled, he wrote letters to the people he had seen or would see soon. Paul writes letters about hope and faith and about caring for others. Each of the fourteen epistles attributed to Paul are featured with its own colorful, double page spread. Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka’s new picture book is full of humanity and kindness.
