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.

    " Wonderful illuminating fictionalized account of the Apostle. Worked well for me. "

    " I read this book for my church book group this month. Largely based on the book of Acts and some of Paul's letters (Romans, Galatians, Ephesians), it provides a great description of life at that time, and the activities of Paul as he spread faith in Christ to the Gentiles. Wangerin took an interesting approach by using multiple characters to provide windows into Paul's work. Plus, there were several moments where Wangerin's narrative reallly brought the Bible to life for me. For example, it was the first time that I've ever read a description of a Biblical stoning that actually gave me a sense of its terrible violence. However, on the whole, I don't think I would read another book by Wangerin. It's too easy to confuse Wangerin's fictional events with those in the Bible. I think I prefer to non-fiction books about the period and research into Paul's work. "

    " Good insight to early church. Shows the danger they ere constantly in, Paul's abrasive personality. But the writing is so over-the-top flowery it was distracting "
