Journey with Saul of Tarsus from Jerusalem's temple and the martyrdom of Stephen to a transforming encounter with the risen Christ on the road to Damascus - then beyond to a waiting world. It is a world of bustling marketplaces filled with the smell of animals and the cry of merchants ... faces, cultures, and traditions as diverse as the varied landscape ... and human character and passions playing out in city streets, in corridors of power, and in homes of the humble. Here, in the shadow of imperial Rome, the early church is unfolding its vigorous bud. And the man Saul, whom the Gentiles know as Paul, will spread its seed, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to the ends of the known world.
