About this Book:
"I have been drawn to Paul of Tarsus from more than forty years, ever since one of my friends said to me, 'Did you know that St. Paul never knew Jesus?' The man was larger than life. Fool for Christ, his burning faith overwhelmed people. Self-proclaimed apostle. Mystic and militant. Architect of Christianity. Well before the Gospels were written, he forged the principles that would guide the Church…."
In this compelling biography, Alain Decaux presents Paul as a man of exceptional passion and conviction, courage and faith, yet one branded by human contradictions, self-doubt, and personal weakness.
Evoking memories of visits he has made to places where the Apostle lived and traveled, Decaux fuses the past with the present to offer and imaginative yet authentic vision of St. Paul's extraordinary story. Beautiful artwork images of the Apostle enrich the text, along with photos relating to Paul's travels. Paul, Least of the Apostles draws the reader into the exciting adventures of a man who spent his life proclaiming the Gospel with freedom and faith in "the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me" (Gal 2:20).
