The Church History

A Wretched Man, a novel of Paul the Apostle has been released to critical acclaim.  The Church history includes Paul's wanderings and writings.  Christianity was born of the troubled relationship of Paul and James, the brother of Jesus.  The church history includes their story.  People of the first century world of Palestine: Jews and Greeks, male and female, slave and free--their stories are included in the church history.

By land and sea, across high plains and through rugged mountain passes, through the cities and hamlets of the Roman Empire, Paul trudged along with one eye toward Rome and one toward Jerusalem.  Wander with him.  Wonder with him.  The journey of this pilgrim is in the church history.

In Jerusalem, James looked up at the white marble walls of the Temple and the brooding Roman fortress alongside as he attempted to walk a straight line through the snarled streets teeming with Hellenists from afar, Pharisees, Sadducees, Essenes, and Zealots and always those bloody Romans.  It was a heavy burden to be the brother of the Messiah, who must hold the Jesus movement together until the Messiah's return.  Walk the narrow streets with him.  Worry with him.  Here you will encounter the church history.

Journey to the first century world and meet the people of A Wretched Man.  Here you will bump into many whose names you know, lifted from the pages of the New Testament, unwitting midwives to the birth pangs of Christianity.  Their story is the church history.  Here you will find camels and donkeys and vipers and a goatsucking nighthawk.  They are in the church history, too.  And as you wander and wonder and walk and worry, as you taste and smell and touch and hear and see, perhaps you will find yourself in the church history.
