Paul's Prison's Epistles (Click here to access the course)
This course offers an analysis of the epistles that Paul wrote from prison (Colossians, Ephesians, Philemon, and Philippians). As Christians we face many challenges to our faith.

And our relationships with other believers are often strained to the point that we doubt the value of the church. Paul responded to these types of difficulties in his letters from prison. This course is a study of these epistles, based on the video lessons of Dr. Reggie M. Kidd produced by Third Millennium Ministries.
