This book really boosted my interest in the scriptures. Since I have finished it, I have read and reread the gospels of Paul to learn more. I am not a biblical expert, but the book seems to be accurate with no apparent flaws.
The narration is difficult to get used to at first. But after an hour or two, I became accustomed to it, and I think it even enhanced the book.
The only significant criticism that I can offer is that the book is a little slow at times.

In this book the beautiful harmony of gifted author and equally gifted reader create a piece that made the New Testament come alive for me. The drama and the passion both inspired me and brought me to tears, as each character leaped from history into life and into my heart as the reader stepped into each one with such authenticity. Essential reading for those for whom the New Testament and this amazing apostle have for too long remained cool (or cold and dead) strangers. Not anymore!

What disappointed you about Paul?
This is fiction pure and simple heavily influenced by an Americanised concept of Jesus and the early Church.
Would you ever listen to anything by Walter Wangerin Jr. again?
What didn’t you like about Walter Wangerin Jr.’s performance?
First century Jews portrayed as 21st Century Americans.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Paul?
The whole book.
I tried to listen to this book but gave up ... I found it pointless and boring.
