I Saul by Jerry B Jenkins BOOK REVIEW

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, Saul by Jerry B. Jenkins is a fascinating novel. It goes back and forth from modern day Augustine Knox to Saul of Tarsus when he was in prison right before he died. They are connected by Saul’s writings from two-thousand years ago.
  This book is full of suspense and intrigue.
I never really thought to much about Saul’s time in prison and how it might have been for him or how his friends might have felt.
  Also it shows you how some people will do anything and harm anyone who gets in their way when they find and think they have something priceless’
  Jerry B. Jenkins is a master teller of tales, he really gets to the meat of the story and doesn’t add a bunch of nonsense.
  Really enjoyed this book and glad I get to review it. Very good and I recommend you to read this fascinating novel.
