A Time to Act

“He saw himself as a purifying fire – while the Nazarenes saw only a destructive blaze. Now everything was about to change. The flame of truth had been lit and he was destined to bear its torch.”
This novel, written for adults, depicts Paul the Apostle from birth to the end of his first missionary journey. There are many books about this great man, but this is something fresh and different; a ‘back story’ creating warm empathy with a complex man who is both anguished and admirable, flawed and likeable. Far more than a mere ‘character’, here the passionate Shaul Benjamin of Tarsus steps out of the New Testament pages, coming to life in a story of ambition, failure, and redemption.
Faithful to the New Testament record, this fictional work takes the reader on a journey. It is a robust story of Jewish experience and travel in the first century Roman empire, and the birth of a momentous new world faith.
A junior version of this book by the same author is available for younger readers, under the title “The Torchbearer”.
