Jerry B. Jenkins in his new book “Empire's End book coverEmpire’s End” published by Worthy Publishing takes us into the life of Paul.

From the back cover: Betrayal. Passion. Defiance. Violence. An obsessed persecutor transformed. And the world would never be the same.

Jerry B. Jenkins’s new novel is filled with adventure, drama, historic people and places, and even romance. Empire’s End tells the story of a man who single- handedly turned the Roman Empire on-end. It will be the heart-stopping story of the year! Only a few snapshots of Paul’s life are revealed in the Bible. In this fictional account, Jenkins tells of a devout Jewish scholar, who after only three years in the Arabian wilderness, emerges as the greatest Christian theologian in history. This novel explains how, after supervising the death of Jesus’s disciples, Paul would be moved to effectively conquer the Roman Empire with a message about a Jewish man named Jesus. You’ll 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.

First he was Saul, a Rabbi who persecuted the new Christians. Then he had an encounter on the road with Jesus and his name was changed to Paul. From there he went out to other places to preach Jesus to the world. Along the way he wrote most of the New Testament. Jerry Jenkins has taken all the information that we know about this man and has written a very creative fictionalized account of his life. Even if we have read the New Testament over and over I believe each of us will find this book a page turner. Paul is a fascinating character and Mr. Jenkins has put possible situations in this story that will most likely surprise most of us. I do not recommend starting this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you will not want to put it down.  Mr. Jenkins is an excellent writer and really knows how to tell a story that will grab and keep you interest all the way through until the end.
