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.

I first saw this book at the library and picked it up because i am so fascinated with Paul, and i was very impressed by this book. it describes the entire life of Paul and it makes you feel like you're there with him ... all i can say is it's a very well written book!!! I recommend it to anyone.

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.
