In this spellbinding novel, Paul, an apostle to the early Christian church, is portrayed as a compelling character who could be at once charming, obstinate, rash, proud and charismatic. His story is told through those who loved him most, and those who were most challenged by him. This rich medley of voices vibrantly recreates both the complex character whose passionate commitment to spreading the gospel of Christ inspired devotion and exasperation in equal measure, and the first-century world upon which he made such a powerful impact. Walter Wangerin, bestselling author of The Book of God, writes not only with a profound and personal understanding of the message Paul was proclaiming, but also with a deep knowledge of the Roman world in all its richness and complexity.
