One of the greatest missionaries of all time, the Apostle Paul almost singlehandedly built Christianity into a world-wide phenomenon. His writings have counseled and encouraged true believers of all ages. This historical fiction novel is told through the voice of Phoebe, who was one of Paul's converts, and who delivered Paul's epistle to the Roman Saints. As she is caught up on the new Christian religion, we feel her enthusiasm, we share her sacrifices, we move with her from place to place as convert numbers swell, fall away through intense persecution, and solidify as a nucleus of stalwarts. In this novel that is both entertaining and educational, Kathryn Afarian invites the reader into an ancient world where the seed bed of our religion was formed. We see firsthand the life of one of the most unique and powerful servants of God who ever lived. Truly, the Apostle Paul and those who loved him were more than conquerors.
