A MURDERER who would change the WORLD
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 two- thousand-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.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Worthy Publishing for the purpose of review. The review is my honest opinion and I was not paid for this service.
I, Saul was an incredible book that I just could not put down. Jerry Jenkins did an excellent job bringing you into the lives of the Apostle Paul and Augustine Knox. Jerry Jenkins did a wonderful job captivating me from the very first page and keeping my attention until the very end. While part of the story is in the present and part is in the past, the author wrote each section in a way that made you feel as though you were actually there. I could picture in my mind all that Saul, who was later named Paul, was going through. I could feel the excitement, the love, the tension and all that Auggie (Augustine Knox) was encountering.
Jerry Jenkins has a descriptive and easy writing style that not only entertains the reader, but captivates the reader into a story that is not only well-written but exciting. The only thing that I did not like about the book was that the story was over before I was ready. It left me wanting to know more about the lives of the characters; perhaps the author will write more about them in another book.
I gave this book 5 stars out of a total of 5 stars. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great read!
