Publisher's Summary

From multi-million copy best-selling novelist Jerry Jenkins comes a compelling international thriller that conveys you from present-day Texas to a dank Roman dungeon in A.D. 67, then down the dusty roads of ancient Israel, Asia, and back to Rome.
A young seminary professor, Augustine Knox, is drawn into a deadly race to save priceless parchments from antiquities thieves and discovers a 2000-year-old connection with another who faced death for the sake of the truth. I, Saul consists of two riveting adventures in one, transporting you between the stories of Augustine Knox and Saul of Tarsus.
Filled with political intrigue, romance, and rich historical detail, I, Saul is a thrilling tale of loyal friendships tested by life-or-death quests, set two millennia apart, told by a master storyteller.

So so thriller

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I doubt I will recommend this. There are three stories going on simultaneously. The first is a standard thriller of a guy being pursued by crooked cops. The second is the story of Luke trying to comfort Paul as he awaits execution. The third is the story of Paul. Of these it was the third that I was most interested in. Unfortunately, that story is mostly about his youth. It is only 90% through the book that Paul has his conversion on the road to Damascus. I wanted to see the political machinations of the early church and that is barely mentioned.

So-So

What did you like best about I, Saul? What did you like least?

I found the potential story line intriguing, but had a great deal of difficulty identifying with the characters due to the poor reading, and poor sound quality. There was some background sound, and the recording stopped repeatedly necessitating rewinding to the previous chapter break, and restarting numerous times.


Would you be willing to try another book from Jerry B. Jenkins and James MacDonald ? Why or why not?

I am not certain.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

The voice quality did not enhance the story in anyway. I found the narrator difficult to listen to, unlike many other recordings I have downloaded from Audible.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

maybe. as I said the story was intriguing.
