The iconic Saint Paul - in his lifetime a scholar, prosecutor for the high court of the Jews, accomplice in murder, adventurer, traveler, orator, writer, advocate, and organizer of a new faith - was in fact a Jewish-Hellenistic citizen of the Roman Empire, a man who by the force of his intellect and indomitable will changed the course of history. Eventually he became the leader of the movement that delivered the social and moral authority of Christianity to a pagan world. His quality of mind and ability to exhort and persuade, his personal commitment to ethical conduct and values, and his courage and indefatigability made Paul one of the continuing forces in the progress of Western civilization.
"Without ever sacrificing story, Cannon neatly explores the various doctrinal squabbles between Paul and the apostles who knew Jesus. A solid addition to the biblical fiction shelves." (Booklist)
"A splendid work of disciplined imagination, giving flesh to a complex man who sought to live by the Spirit." (Kenneth L. Woodward, longtime Religion Editor of Newsweek and author of Making Saints)
