Empire's End by Jerry Jenkins
I was so excited to read this book. Having read I, Saul I was ready to see where he was going to take Paul in his newest novel.
I was not disappointed.
The characters came to lie as I read the book. I could feel them think, ache, love, and struggle. What was the most amazing thing is that, while no one knows for sure all of what happened to Paul, I could see how what Jenkins described could have played out.
Not only that but the way in which Jenkins peppers Scripture into this novel was genius. It really added a life to Paul that I had not anticipated. I would be curious to sit next to Paul and asked him how close Jerry Jenkins came to describing him. Would not that be a great conversation to hear?
