Subject: Lightly fictionalized life of St. Paul. --- "Joy Harington was inspired to create this life of St Paul, which she herself calls 'a chapter in the history of man's search for God'. PAUL OF TARSUS traces the growth of Christianity from the upper room in Jerusalem, through the disciples' fearless witness for the risen Christ; Saul's sudden conversion on the road to Damascus; his establishment of the early churches in Asia and Greece; his shipwrecks and torments, until, as a prisoner in bonds, he reaches his heart's desire - Rome. " (jacket blurb, courtesy of Sarah Romney, ANTIQUARIAT). About 20pp set in Rome.
