About the Book

With this book, “All About Paul”, Mr. Jungers has added another collection of his e-mails on Christianity to those found in his previous four books. Saint Paul has always been his favorite apostle. The reasons for that are highlighted in this book. Paul has been called, “The Father of Theology”, rightly so; some, by exaggeration, say he is the “Father of Christianity”. Mr. Jungers prefers to think about Paul in his own terms as the “Doulos Xristou Iesou”, the slave of Christ Jesus. Christ was his Master and Paul was a spiritual slave to him. We know real facts about Paul’s life, facts gleaned from his authentic letters, and from the Acts of the Apostles, written by his friend and companion, Luke. Mr. Jungers has gathered together these facts from their sources and added his own insights, gleaned from years of meditation on the words of the “Greatest Apostle” of Jesus Christ. Paul’s own dictum sums up neatly his relationship with his Master: “If you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord And believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, You will be saved.” (Rm 10:9)

About the Author

Wallace S. Jungers, S.T.B., is a graduate of Woodstock College in Theology, where he studied under the renowned theologian, John Courtney Murray. He also has been awarded degrees in Philosophy, Ph. L., and in Chemistry, B.S.


Mr. Jungers taught Chemistry at St. Joseph’s Prep in Philadelphia and at Loyola College in Baltimore.


From the viewpoint of a modern Christian, Mr. Jungers has been explaining the New Testament to believers who are searching for a better understanding of the “vera et sincera” (true and honest) deeds of Jesus of Nazareth. Well versed in Greek and Latin, Mr. Jungers translates from the Greek text of Mr. Kurt Aland et alii (4th Ed), called UBS4.  


As an advocate of the modern trend of “Praying the Scriptures”, Mr. Jungers brings life to these ancient documents, which form the basis of the Christian Faith.


He lives in La Mesa, California with his wife, Sue, who is the retired long-term principal of Mt. Carmel Academy in Chicago. They have two married daughters, Jane and Jennifer, and three grandchildren, Jane’s Kurtis, and Colin, and Jennifer’s Amber.


Recently, Mr. Jungers’ wife, Sue, wrote these words to a friend, who had inquired about Wally:


“Describing Wally is really very easy. He is not at all complicated or complex. In fact, he is a very simple man.


He is always smiling, loves his wife, and daughters, and grandchildren.

You can set your watch by him. In Chicago, he gets up at the same time every day, meditates and prays regularly, reads scripture and scripture scholars, writes about the early Church, swims for one-half hour, has a half a glass of wine and three crackers with cheese while watching Tom Brokaw, eats dinner, watches TV, and goes to bed at 9:00 every night.”
