Empire's End (Paperback)Jerry B Jenkins/James McDonald
The story of a man who single-handedly turned the Roman Empire on-end.
Only a few snapshots of Paul’s life are revealed in the Bible. In this fictional account, Jerry B. Jenkins tells of a devout Jewish scholar, who after only three years in the Arabian wilderness, emerges as the greatest Christian theologian in history.
Empire’s End explains how Paul, once dedicated to the persecution of Jesus’ disciples, is moved to effectively conquer the Roman Empire with a message about a Jewish man named Jesus.
You will be captured by the shocking “thorn in the flesh” that burdened Paul’s heart. Empire’s End will cause you to rethink whether Paul ever experienced the love of a woman or the embrace of a child.

FROM THE MEMOIR
OF SAINT PAUL THE APOSTLE
I never referred to the stoning of Stephen as murder, because even
standing close enough to hear the blows that tore his flesh did not weaken
my belief that we had carried out the judgment of God Himself.
A student of the Scriptures, I knew the sin of putting another god
before the one true God. The Jesus-followers had the audacity to elevate
that common carpenter to the position of a Christ, the Messiah. And even
though this Stephen had been able to conjure some of the same miracles,
he had also proved merely mortal in the end.
Now would they worship their new leader, the uneducated fisherman
Peter, who may not have had the silver tongue of Stephen but was convincing
enough to persuade thousands to become followers of The Way?
