In a surprising turn of events, the life of Jason of Tarsus intersects with that of his elusive uncle, the Apostle Paul. As the life and travels of this fictitious nephew unfold, so also does an imaginative but highly probable story of the unknown years of the famous apostle’s life. While rounding out the picture of the beloved Apostle Paul, this well-researched novel also brims over with glimpses of first-century personalities and cultures, in settings that range from perilous mountain passes near Tarsus, to bustling cities, to the balmy southern coast of Spain.
