"I, Saul" by Jerry Jenkins

There is a race to find the works of the Apostle Paul relating to his early life. Some of those searching are only looking for the money and fame the discovery would bring, while there are a few who want to keep the work from exploitation. Which one would you be? Throughout the search, the reader is given insight into the life of Saul before he became the Apostle Paul, along with the imprisonment Paul suffered. 

Paul is in prison when Luke comes to see him. Paul desperately wants to stay alive until his execution, and counts on Luke to help him. As the story unfolds, Paul recounts memories of his past as Saul of Tarsus through his salvation and ministry. His biggest desire is to get things written down and to be a testimony even after death. How will Luke handle the conversation of death with his friend? Will Paul accomplish his goal? As the past collides with the present, it is rumored that the writings need to be found. What happened to them and who will find them? Come join the believers and the collectors in the hunt for a precious piece of Christian history. Who will be the first to discover the truth about the documents?

I enjoy Jerry Jenkins' writing very much. He puts so much research and realism into his words that they jump off the page. I did enjoy this book and recommend it. My review copy came from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
