Most Christian fiction is written for conservative, evangelicals. Not so, A Wretched Man, a novel of Paul the Apostle, which will appeal to a liberal Christian. A liberal Christian prefers substance over fluff: provocative, thoughtful and challenging. A liberal Christian will appreciate this novel because it raises difficult questions and does not offer easy answers, because it offers an alternative view of Christian history, and because it dares to provoke.
Enter the first century Greco-Roman world, watch flying fish dart between swells of the Great Sea from the creaking deck of a merchant galley, listen to the shrill cries of agora vendors, huddle around a mountain campfire along a Roman highway, taste a savory lamb kebab washed down with fresh-brewed barley beer, and inhale incense drifting from the holy of holies of the Jerusalem temple. As a liberal Christian, you will be stimulated by the pilgrimage, and you will witness the birth pangs of a new religion born of the testy union between the Gentile churches spawned by Paul and the Jerusalem church ruled by James, the brother of Jesus.
A liberal Christian is willing to challenge orthodoxy. A Wretched Man questions the traditional view of Christian origins. A liberal Christian is willing to accept human diversity. Struggle with Paul as he wrestles with religious, ethnic, and sexual boundaries in the world of the first century Roman Empire. They are intellectually honest. A Wretched Man reflects contemporary Christian scholarship.
Put away childish things, intones Paul. Journey with the man from Tarsus and follow his pilgrimage.
