How did the Apostle Paul, who never met Jesus and who was not one of the disciples who followed the man from Nazareth during his ministry, become the most important person in the history of Christianity, apart from Jesus? The recently released novel, A Wretched Man, explores the life and times of the Apostle Paul, especially his character and his conflict. For nearly thirty years after his celebrated conversion on the road to Damascus, the Apostle Paul trudged the highways of the Roman Empire to share his good news with the Gentiles, but always under the skeptical eye of the friends and family of Jesus, his original Jewish followers, who remained in Jerusalem.
Come, travel along with him on his pilgrimage. Take this tantalizing journey into the first century as the novel draws you in with the sights, sounds, and smells of the world of the Roman Empire and keeps you there with a thought-provoking and well-researched depiction of the controversial Apostle Paul. Along the way, you will witness the birth pangs of Christianity.
He drew adversaries like a moth to a flame: Jews of the synagogue, pagan temple priests, Roman authorities, and James, the brother of Jesus. With each step along countless miles, he carried the rejection and disapproval of James in Jerusalem, the brother who inherited the mantle of leadership following the crucifixion of Jesus. Christianity was born of the often contentious relationship between the Apostle Paul, missionary to the Gentiles, and James, the brother of the Lord and leader of the Jesus movement in Jewish Jerusalem.
