The author does a nice job of weaving the few known facts about Saul/Paul into a good novel. Clearly, the author had to take liberties since there is scant information known about the apostle. The story was enjoyable and the narrator did a good job. I'm sure that the author conducted a lot of research to keep a book based largely on conjecture believable. For that, I applaud this effort. As a Christian, I was looking for something that would further my understanding of the early church movement and the interaction of the apostles. While no one knows for sure how accurate this account could be, it is probably in the ball park. I gave it four stars as it was very good, but not outstanding. I gave the narrator four stars as he did not change his voice as different characters spoke like the very best narrators do. Would I recommend this book to anyone interested in how Christianity spread from inside the walls of Jerusalem to the outer parts of the world? YES!

The narration is lacking. It is very difficult to listen to the same sing songy pattern for 17 hours. I recommend J.C. Hayes vary his intonation to match the action.
