Publisher's Summary

Saul of Tarsus: Pharisee of Pharisees. Bitter enemy of the newborn church...until a blinding encounter with the risen Christ transformed him into Paul the apostle, ambassador of Jesus of the Gentiles. Master storyteller Walter Wangerin Jr. sweeps you into the life and times of the man who brought Christianity to the world. Here is Paul the person, viewed through the eyes of his contemporaries. His rich interaction and brilliant dialogue with friends and foes, leaders and slaves, Jews and Greeks, creates a drama - swift, intense, historical. Narrated by 10 distinct historical figures, Wangerin paints a multifaceted portrait of the fiery character whose Gospel message sundered cultural trappings to ignite a faith that would light the ages.


What the Critics Say

"This book combines the very best of Wangerin's skills: biblical knowledge, a sense of drama, unobtrusive scholarship, and the ability to tell a crackling good story." (Philip Yancey)
