The sequel to Walt Wangerin?s best-selling Book of God that picks up the New Testament narratives where The Book of God left off. This new volume tells the story of Saul/Paul, beginning with his early family life, developing through his persecution of the Christians, his conversion and early ministry, his missionary travels, and ending with his voyage to Rome. Most of the information is gathered from the books that The Book of God does not include: Acts and the epistles. This story is told in an epic, fictional style, like The Book of God, but it focuses on the single character, Paul, and thereby allows for a fuller and deeper development of character and plot.
An intimate portrait of a complex individual through whom God was at work, turning the world upside down. With vivid imagination and scholarly depth, award-winning author Walter Wangerin Jr. weaves together the history of the early church with the life story of its greatest apostle--Paul. Wangerin begins to unfold Paul s incredible life by imagining the childhood and early family life of a boy then called "Saul." A fierce prosecutor of Christians before his conversion, Paul never lost his fiery dedication, boldness, and strong personality. After his shocking encounter with God on the road to Damascus, he applied his formidable strengths to spreading the gospel. Wangerin deftly reveals Paul s character through each stage of his life, and enables us to see Paul the person, living and complex, viewed through the eyes of his contemporaries: Barnabas, James, Prisca, Seneca, and Luke. Paul s rich interaction and brilliant dialogue with friends and foes, leaders and slaves, Jews and Greeks, creates a swift and intense historical drama around the man who spread the seed of the Gospel to the ends of the known world."
