Excellent fictional account of the apostle Paul (Saul) and his amazing conversion on the road to Damascus. Engaging!
Remarkable story of Paul's life in fiction form. The research Cash did for the historic background is exceptional!
Johnny Cash spent nine years studying and writing about the life of St. Paul. Cash identified with Paul's experience. To him, Paul represented a study of profound transformation in the life of a human being.
Man in White covers Saul's early obsession with destroying the Christian movement, describes his ex traordinary conversion on the road to Damascus, and charts the beginnings of his missionary work. While the story is dramatic, Cash brings to it an uncanny instinct about Paul's personality, experience and emotions. His passion for detail and his understanding of human nature make Man in Wite immediate, believable, and moving.
Johnny Cash was one the greatest entertainers to grace this Earth. With this book, he also showed his talent as an author.
I did not like this book. I couldn't get into it and it didn't hold my attention. I am a huge fan of Johnny Cash, I guess more his music than his writing.
