The foundations of Jewish law are under threat from the followers of a man called Jesus. These people have reached Damascus. They must be stopped. Saul, uncompromising and brutal, is the man for the job. But by the time Saul reaches Damascus he is blind and in shock. What could have happened to him on that journey? How does a man react when his beliefs are turned upside down? Now calling himself Paul, can he convince his former enemies to trust him? Can he convince the world that Jesus’s teachings are for everyone? Through treacherous journeys, passionate preaching and long letters, Paul tries to tell the world what he believes, but will it make any difference?

I wanted a readable synopsis of the life of Paul of Tarsis which is exactly what I got. People of all ages would find it factual. If I wanted to find out about another person in a quick readable manner, I would buy another book in this series. It follows the life very well and I will probably read it again sometime. The only problem that I had with this book is that I wanted to feel into the heart of the man and this small book did not give me anything except the facts. It is a short little book and takes only about an hour to read.
