Empire's End by Jerry B. Jenkins

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. Read on.

Empire’s End by Jerry B. Jenkins takes on the challenging task of bringing the prominent biblical writer, Paul, to life in fiction. The story begins with his drastic and dramatic conversion and follows with his ensuing growth and ministry. Though Empire’s End is definitely a fictional representation of history, I found it an captivating and thought-provoking depiction of the possibilities of Paul’s experience, character and emotion and thoroughly enjoyed it. While I doubt this book would please every reader, I think those interested in biblical fiction - especially in Paul - just might find it fascinating. From start to finish, Empire’s End is quite an interesting and intriguing read.

Thanks to Worthy’s First Look, I received a copy of Empire’s End and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
