It is a world of bustling marketplaces filled with the smell of animals and the cry of merchants... faces, cultures, and traditions as diverse as the varied landscape... and human character and passions playing out in city streets, in corridors of power, and in homes of the humble. Here, in the shadow of imperial Rome, the early church is unfolding its vigorous bud. And the man Saul, whom the Gentiles know as Paul, will spread its seed, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to the ends of the known world.Master storyteller Walter Wangerin Jr. sweeps you into the life and times of the man who brought Christianity to the world. He presents Paul the person, living and complex, 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, and historical. In vibrant pigments of the imagination and narrated by ten distinct historical figures, Wangerin paints a moving, multifaceted portrait of the fiery character whose Gospel message cut through cultural trappings toignite a faith that would light the ages.
