One sometimes lives an age in a few minutes. Dewey lived longer in one minute at Manila than during any ten years of his previous life. At the Diet of Worms Luther lived more than a decade. There come crises in our lives upon which focalizes all the past and all the future depends. Such was the experience of Saul of Tarsus as he approached Damascus. In a short time he becomes a new man and begins a new life. The course of events in his experience may be divided into five periods, each one a dissolving view merging into the other.
