    This is an amazing book.  Wangerin is one of the most talented modern writers I have ever read.  He knows how to describe a character with such pizzazz that you feel like you are standing next to them.  He also has the ability to take a two-minute scene and make it last ten pages, giving the reader a chance to watch every little twitch of every character in the scene.  It was interesting how he was able to intermingle the growing up of Nero Caesar during the ministries of Paul, thus preparing the reader for the trial Paul had under Nero, even though the book did not cover that trial.  Wangerin introduced several unique and believable twists in plot involving Priscilla that brought to life some of the things mentioned about Paul in just once sentence in the Bible.  Even though I did not agree with the charasmatic outpourings of Titus, everything else in the book was outstanding and I am already recommending it to others.  This book is 500 pages, but easy to read.

    Cut me to the core of my soul

    Paul is an epic that defines the difference between the fictional Christianity of Hollywood and the truth behind the life of real people and the greatest spiritual awakening of the Jewish faith.
