Paul the Apostle

A Wretched Man, a novel of Paul the Apostle, has been released to critical acclaim.  The novel is "a powerful recreation of the world of Paul the apostle … that pulls no punches!" says one reviewer.  "A Wretched Man: A Novel of Paul the Apostle is a stunning fictional account of the early church that reads like real-life," says another.

This well-researched novel of historical fiction follows Paul along the highways of the Roman Empire of the first century.  Passing through ancient Jerusalem and Damascus, Antioch on the Orantes, the land mass of Anatolia (Turkey), the cities and hamlets around the Aegean Sea, and finally Imperial Rome, Paul the apostle encounters emperors and slaves, Jews and Greeks, and men and women lifted from the pages of the New Testament as they stumble their way forward following the death of Jesus of Nazareth, unwitting midwives to the birth of Christianity. "Real individuals, with passions and agendas, step on to the world stage," says a reviewer.

The novel offers a provocative perspective of Paul and his conflict with James, the brother of Jesus.  For nearly three decades, these two contended for the heart and soul of emerging Christianity.  As Paul the apostle trod the Roman highways establishing Gentile churches, James struggled to keep the Jesus movement alive in Jewish Jerusalem.  Three times they came together for face to face confrontations.  Listen and watch as Christianity was born of the uneasy relationship between the brother of Jesus and Paul the Apostle.
