 Our Description

Paul: Tarsus to Redemption
Story by Matthew Salisbury and Gabrielle Gniewek
Art by Sean Lam

A man from Tarsus... A persecutor who learned to love... A missionary who spread the truth… His name is Paul. Paul: Tarsus to Redemption is the second edition of the original manga series written by Matthew Salisbury and Gabrielle Gniewek, and illustrated by Sean Lam. This book retells the life of Paul, perhaps one of the most influential early Christian missionary. The story begins with his days as a persecutor of early Christians, his conversion on the road to Damascus, his adventures as a missionary of the early church, and ending with his eventual imprisonment and execution in Rome. This graphic novel also includes a map that traces his journeys, as well as factual insights about the real Paul who lived during height of the Roman Empire.

Profile
    Saul was a Jewish Talmudic student. Pharisee. Tent-maker by trade. Saul the Jew hated and persecuted Christians as heretical, even assisting at the stoning of Saint Stephen the First Martyr. On his way to Damascus to arrest another group of them, he was knocked off his horse and to the ground, struck blind by a heavenly light, and given the message that in persecuting Christians, he was persecuting Christ. The experience had a profound spiritual effect on him, causing his conversion to Christianity. He was baptized, changed his name to Paul to reflect his new persona, and began travelling, preaacing and writing. Author of much of the New Testament of the Sacred Scriptures and is often called the 13th Apostle. He was martyred by the sword in Rome.
