A modern classic, Great Lion of God spent a remarkable eight months on the New York Times best-seller list. It is a grand biblical narrative from Taylor Caldwell, the award-winning author acclaimed for majestic historical tales like Dear and Glorious Physician and I, Judas. This is a sweeping novel of the life and times of Paul of Tarsus. A man with uniquely human qualities, Paul faced a world much like that of today, yet two millennia in the past. An extremely intelligent and passionate man, he spread Judeo-Christianity throughout the world. From his work arose the foundation for the morals and philosophy of contemporary Western thought. Many books have been written about St. Paul's accomplishments, but Caldwell's story is unique and compelling for its focus on Paul the human being, with all the strengths and weaknesses we see mirrored in ourselves. John McDonough's warm narration intensifies the richness of this epic.
