He has written several white papers for the US army and doctrine for the US Army Chaplainry. Since retiring, he has written two books “The Threat from Within” and “Who Do You Say I Am? Jesus Called the Christ.”

“...there are three reasons to write on Paul. First, Paul is writing at the close of an immense passage of time that began with Abram and ended with Jesus. The faith of our fathers was completed. Second, the revelation of God’s salvation completed in Jesus Christ, and the manner of its delivery gave Paul a point of view that was not fully shared by his predecessors. Lastly, Paul was writing to a Christian church in the middle of a pagan society. Not unlike America today.” --William Merrifield

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, William Merrifield’s new book explores the thoughts of Paul the Apostle. Paul concluded his revelation by saying Jesus himself had declared, “It is finished.” The great movement, which began with the call to Abram and ended with Jesus returning to the Father, was over. Paul was freed to write about the meaning of life as he stood in the full revelation that came to him through Christ Jesus.

To the church, it does not matter whether Paul directed this process or he simply recorded it in his epistles. Paul speaks to the Faithful as one who has stood in the light of God’s glory and who has seen the light in the face of Jesus. He calls to the Faithful as they face the terrifying world of the Twenty-First Century. Come with author William Merrifield as he contemplates the thoughts of Paul.
