I, Saul weaves an interesting story of the childhood and
experiences that may have shaped the man who became Paul the Apostle. Author
Jerry B. Jenkins with James S. MacDonald alternate Saul’s story with chapters
about a young seminary professor caught in an intrigue relating to valuable
parchments. Of course, there’s a bit of romance thrown in and lots of
relationships that develop through the story.
With the alternating chapters, I occasionally had to check
back to keep characters straight—who was good, who was bad. And of course,
sometimes you weren’t sure who was what. All in all I found it an insightful
and entertaining read.
