Publisher's Summary

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 2000-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.

Loved it!

Any additional comments?

Loved the story. Finished the book in about 3 days. The book goes about 2 stories at a time. One in the present day and one in the days of Paul.

On the edge of my seat!

I felt as if I was a spectator watching everything the writers wrote because of their ability to bring the words to life--Paul's prison cell, every character had a face, every place was clearly seen (though I have not traveled there).

I recommend the book to everyone who loves a good historical novel.

Loved the narration, too.

I will definitely listen again and again.

So so thriller

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I doubt I will recommend this. There are three stories going on simultaneously. The first is a standard thriller of a guy being pursued by crooked cops. The second is the story of Luke trying to comfort Paul as he awaits execution. The third is the story of Paul. Of these it was the third that I was most interested in. Unfortunately, that story is mostly about his youth. It is only 90% through the book that Paul has his conversion on the road to Damascus. I wanted to see the political machinations of the early church and that is barely mentioned.

Worth the listen

I thought the multiple plot lines between modern day and the first century kept my interest in a way any one of them alone could not have. The accuracy of the story with what is historically known was very well handled extremely well and the portrayal of Paul made me think about aspects of his life I had not considered before. A solid story with a good performance.

So-So

What did you like best about I, Saul? What did you like least?

I found the potential story line intriguing, but had a great deal of difficulty identifying with the characters due to the poor reading, and poor sound quality. There was some background sound, and the recording stopped repeatedly necessitating rewinding to the previous chapter break, and restarting numerous times.

Would you be willing to try another book from Jerry B. Jenkins and James MacDonald ? Why or why not?

I am not certain.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The voice quality did not enhance the story in anyway. I found the narrator difficult to listen to, unlike many other recordings I have downloaded from Audible.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

maybe. as I said the story was intriguing.

Saul, a novel.

Wow! Truly wonderful combination of Scripture and imagination.
Two stories intertwined into this epic.
A great read that captivates you and keeps you listening, especially at the end of each chapter.
Alternating story lines keep it fresh.

Great concept, great execution

I'm writing a few weeks later, so I'm left with overall impressions at this point. I found this compelling and plausible, so if the idea intrigues you, I think you'll enjoy it.

Wonderful, enlightening story.

I would recommend this book to new believers. "The Road to Demarcus" was mentioned once to me. I didn't know the story of Paul, and I wanted to know the connection. I now want to know more about the other deciples.

Exciting and humbling

I enjoyed the suspense, the history, and the Word. My faith grew. I want to be a bold voice for the gospel of Jesus Christ. I enjoyed the alternating stories by chapter.

Lacking

The story was okay. The characters were very shallow. Stuff happened and I was supposed to care, but I didn't. Even the supposedly original writings that they were protecting didn't excite me at all. The author didn't really give me a reason to get invested in the story except to say the writings were really important.
