In this drama starring Garry Cooper, we follow Saul, the angry zealot, to Paul, the servant of Christ, who will pay any price to bring his message to the world.
“Paul The Emissary” is the best movie I have ever seen on the life of the Apostle Paul. It deals with all the highlights of his life and ministry in a realistic manner, all while staying very true to the scriptures. It shows us Paul as Saul of Tarsus, the persecutor of the church. It shows his dramatic conversion on the Road to Damascus, as well as his partnering first with Barnabas and then with Silas. We see him sing praises in jail with Silas and the opening of the prison door following the earthquake. We also see him travel across the sea during a storm, make it safely to land and survive a poisonous snake bite. Finally, we watch him witness for Christ and write the passages in 1 Timothy before he is beheaded.
Garry Cooper gives an excellent and inspiring performance as Paul. This film is a must-see! Five Doves all the way! We are pleased to award it our Faith Friendly Seal for ages 12+. “Paul the Emissary” is a powerful film based on a spiritual giant of the Bible.
